RALPH BRANCA His baseball memoir, A Moment in Time, signed on the title page Book signed: "Ralph Branca", 6½x9½, 223 pages. A Moment in Time, by Ralph Branca, with David Ritz. New York: Scribner, 2011. Hardcover with dust jacket. Ralph Branca (1926-2016) pitched for the Brooklyn Dodgers (1944-1953, 1956), Detroit Tigers (1953-1954) and New York Yankees (1954). An All-Star in 1947, 1948 and 1949, he was 21-12 in 1947 with a 2.67 ERA. In the 1947 World Series, he won Game Six, saved by Al Gionfriddo's famous catch of DiMaggio's drive. On October 3, 1951, Branca threw the pitch that the New York Giants' Bobby Thomson hit for a three-run homer ("the shot heard round the world") to give the Giants' the National League pennant. It's ironic that Branca, a fine pitcher, is remembered mainly for this miscue. Branca was embittered for a time, especially after learning that the Giants had been stealing signs and that Thomson was tipped off as to his pitch. But he became friends with Thomson in the 1980s, and this book passionately champions Branca's love of baseball. Fine condition.
