Bobby Thomson was a famous 20th century baseball player from Earth playing for the New York Giants.

In 2366, Doctor Paul Stubbs remembered a baseball game that Bobby Thomson participated in with the words: "Lockman on first, Dark on second, Thomson at the plate, Branca on the mound." (TNG: "Evolution")

The specific game Stubbs recalled was the decisive third game of a three-game series for the 1951 National League championship between the Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers. This at-bat would culminate in Thomson hitting the home run which would become known as the Shot Heard 'Round the World, winning the game and the pennant for the Giants.
