: : I thought that "the shot heard around the world" was when archduke ferdinand was assinated in sarajevo, commencing WWI....someone told that was wrong and it had to do w/ the revolutionary war...could someone help me out ASAP!
: In 1951, a Bobby Thomson hit a 3 run homer to win the World Series for the NY Giants. Ralph Branca threw the pitch that became the "the shot heard around the world".
it is the first shot fired in the lexington and concord battle of the revolutionary war that was the first battle of the war.
