Trivia: Same Name Answer

Congratulations to Stephane Miller and Gary Dryfoos who both knew that on both April 19, 1775 and October 3, 1951 there occurred "the Shot Heard 'Round the World." The first was the anonymous opening shot of the Battle of Lexington which signaled the commencement of the American Revolution. The second was a game-winning homerun hit by New York Giant Bobby Thomson off of Ralph Branca which defeated the Brooklyn Dodgers on the final day of the 1951 season to win the National league pennant. They each win a pair of tickets and large tub of popcorn, all courteousy of LSC.
