This article reminds me that Whitey Lockman was on base when Bobby Thomson hit his 'shot' in 1951. I remember the day well...riding the school bus home and the bus driver had the game on the radio. Quite a moment because I hated the Dodgers.

Also, it was news to me that Lockman injured his shoulder as he helped several team members lift Thomson over their heads.
