The ultimate hero from the 1951 NL pennant race has passed away. Bobby Thomson, the Flying Scotsman, died peacefully Monday night at his home in Savannah, Georgia.

Thomson played 15 seasons for five teams but is finest remembered for his “Shot Heard Round the World” within the 3rd and deciding game with the 1951 NL playoffs. Thomson’s two-run blast within the bottom of the ninth inning capped what is believed by many to be the best pennant race within the history of baseball.

Rest in Peace Bobby, all Giant fans will never forget you.
