: Can anyone tell me the first time the phrase "shot heard round the world" was used to describe Bobby Thomson's famous home run in 1951? How did the phrase, which had earlier described the beginning of the revolutionary war, come to describe the home run?

We just discussed this 'bout a week ago.
Just scroll down a bit to 9-4 or so.
