DATE: 10/3/1951
GAME: Brooklyn Dodgers @ New York Giants (Regular Season Tie-Breaker)
PLAYER: Bobby Thomson, New York Giants
COMPLEX SAYS: Yes, this is the obvious choice for the most memorable home run in major league baseball history, but what you (probably) don't know about it makes it even cooler for us. To wit: This most famous of games, New York vs. New York, Harlem vs. Brooklyn wasn't even sold out! And, Thomson's Shot was the product of a season-long effort by the Giants to steal signs using a telescope in the centerfield clubhouse. Keep it classy baseball!
