Oct. 30 would have marked Bobby Bragan's 93rd birthday. Bobby's birthday was always accompanied by a big celebration, including last year when the Lifetime Achievement Award Gala coincided with his 92nd birthday (pictured right with Jim "The Rookie" Morris and Bobby's daughter Cissie.)
It was always a big celebration because every year that Fort Worth was blessed with the presence of Bobby Bragan was a gift. Also, Bobby no doubt would have been thrilled to have celebrated his 93rd birthday on the same day the Texas Rangers posted their first-ever win in a World Series game. From the very beginning in 1972, it would be difficult to find a bigger Rangers' supporter than Bobby.
