October 3rd 1951. Giants 3rd baseman Bobby Thomson hit the most dramatic home run in the history of baseball.
The moment occurred in the bottom of the ninth inning in a sudden-death playoff game between the New York Giants and their arch rivals from Brooklyn, the Dodgers.
People across the nation watched on their new TV sets, and the home run became known as the "Shot Heard 'Round the World."
But after clearing the left-field wall, the central artifact of the play - the ball itself - inexplicably went missing. The mystery of what happened to that legendary baseball has remained unsolved for a half century.
