He threw the pitch to Bobby Thompson....which turned out to be the "Shot Heard 'round the World in the '51 WS.

Remember..."The Giants Win The Pennant".

Turns out that Leo "the Lip" Derocher had a telescope installed in his office in center field to pick off the catcher's signs...and then relayed that info to the dugout via a "buzzer" system.

Jut some baseball trivia...

FWIW

Clyde Sukeforth....who was the Brooklyn pitching coach sent Branca to the mound to pitch in relief instead of "Oiskine".

Now, Sukey was instrumental in the signing of Jacky O to the Dodgers.

Lot's of history...especially since no one alive has witnessed the Cubs winning a World Series.

The last time the Cubs did that in 1908....Wrigley Field didn't exist.
