Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Bobby Thomson's decisive home run in the 1951 National League playoffs is one of the most iconic moments in American sports history; Several novels have featured "the shot heard 'round the world" at their vortex. Now, with his own name carved deep in Giants annals, the famed outfielder offers his choices for the top five all-time Giants at each position. Thomson is well qualified for the task: He's either watched or played with every major star from the days of Bill Terry and Carl Hubbell up to the present. A superb addition to a popular series.
