Miracle Ball: My Hunt for the Shot Heard 'Round the World by Brian Biegel

LOVED this book. "On October 3, 1951 Giants 3rd Baseman Bobby Thomson hit the most dramatic home run in the history of baseball". The ball itself went missing. Who had it? Why did they never come forward? FASCINATING.

The author starts this book in a deep depression. His father's interest in the missing ball, which may be in his possession, fuels his interest. In a quest to prove his father has (or doesn't have) the ball, he starts a search. This search takes him across the country and ends with an unlikely solution. I really liked this book.
