When Travis Ishikawa hit his walk off homer against the Cardinals on Thursday night, the first play that many fans thought of was Bobby Thomson’s pennant-winning homer in 1951 for the Giants. Joe Buck paid homage to Russ Hodges’ call of the play, and many thought Buck absolutely nailed it.
MLB.com one-upped Buck, however – they took the audio of Hodges’ call and laid it on top of Ishikawa’s homer. The result was awesome.
What a great homage to history. This is just awesome. My hat is off to you, MLB.
