Has passed away at the age of 86.

Thank You Mr. Thompson

Ralph Branca
signed my program at a Brooklyn Cyclones game a few years ago.
I had this picture of Bobby and Ralph hanging on my wall for many years.
This would be that autograph; cut out and put into the frame.



My respects to the

Bobby,
rest well my friend.

    To the Thompson Family my deepest sympathy. I grew up in Brooklyn NY and was a Dodger Fan but my late Dad was a Giant Fan. Yes if you were a baseball fan in that era Bobby's homerun was pretty darn great.

    May G-D protect Bobby's Soul for all eternity.

  4. Anonymous ~ I'm sure you have stories people would find fascinating. Maybe at your leisure you can drop a story of those days in my e-mail in-box.
