September’s Scottish Hero is Glasgow born baseball player, Bobby Thomson, who hit the "Shot Heard 'Round the World" in 1951. Bobby Brown Thomson was raised on Staten Island and in 1942 signed with the New York Giants right out of high school. Over the next 18 years Thomson was traded to several teams including the Chicago Cubs before ending his career with the Baltimore Orioles. Thomson became famous for hitting a game-winning home run to win the 1951 National League pennant. It is often called the “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” and is probably the most famous home run in baseball history. The ball was never recovered.
That same year the Chicago Scots declared Bobby Thomson the “Scot of the Year” and invited him to attend the 106th annual Feast of the Haggis at the Conrad Hilton hotel in Chicago. He was presented with a certificate and an engraved watch. The Society said “he not only exemplifies the best traits of the Scottish character, but made the year’s outstanding contribution to the ideals of good sportsmanship.” Bobby Thomson died in 2010 at the age of 86.
