Uncovering the controversy behind the homerun famously called "The Shot Heard Round the World" which caused Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher, Ralph Branca, to lose the National League Pennant on October 3, 1951 to THEIR bitter rival New York Giants, Branca’s Pitch follows 86 year-old Ralph Branca’s journey to pen a memoir that finally tells his side of the story. From executive producer Bobby Valentine, 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 16mm film of the 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field that finally unearths one of baseball's "Golden Age" best kept secrets.
