Famed Giants home run hitter Bobby Thomson has died at age 86.
Thomson's death was confirmed Tuesday by the funeral home in Savannah, Ga., that is handling the arrangements. He had been in failing health for several years and died at home Monday night.
The Giants were in the New York at the time of course, but the hit and the win helped set up a rivalry with the Dodger that still is very much alive today.
Thomson's death was first reported by the New York Daily News.
