Recalling The 1951 N.L. Playoff

October 1, 2018

Exactly 67 years ago today, on Monday October 1st, a best of three, unscheduled playoff series for the National League pennant between the New York Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers commenced.

The series culminated in a Giants’ victory on Bobby Thomson’s home run.

In the first game Thomson homered as well. Both times Ralph Branca was the Brooklyn pitcher.

 

One might be that the Dodgers won a coin toss and elected to play the first game at home.
