Product Notes

On October 3, 1951 Ralph Branca became a legendary figure in baseball history. The 26 year-old Brooklyn Dodger pitcher became infamous for losing the National League Pennant to the bitter rival New York Giants, by giving up the game winning homerun termed 'The Shot Heard Round the World.' Jeered by once adoring fans and labeled a scapegoat for the rest of his life, Ralph never reclaimed his career. From Executive Producer Bobby Valentine, BRANCA'S PITCH follows 86 year-old Ralph Branca's journey to pen a memoir that finally tells his side of the story, to try and restore his fascinating, yet overlooked legacy in baseball's Golden Age of the '40s and '50s. The documentary features a mixture of verite, and archival materials including many of Branca's own films and photos such as a recently discovered and restored color 16 mm film of the 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field.
