I saw an interview with him and Ralph Branca not too long ago, it was awesome hearing them talking about it. I think it took some time for Branca to come around and do it though.

My thoughts and prayers are with Thompson and his family.

I think I heard that Thompson and Branca actually became close friends over the years.

Anyways, sad day for baseball but Thompson`s home run will live forever. One of the most incredible highlights of all-time.
