The Shot Heard Round the World

First Series Nationally Televised Baseball Series

On October 3, 1951, Ernie Harwell was part of the NBC TV broadcast team for the playoff series between the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants. Harwell’s efforts were not recorded and most remember Russ Hodges‘ radio call of Bobby Thomson’s game winning home run.

Our next podcast will be released on Friday, December 10th.  This podcast will feature the late, great Ernie Harwell.
