Bragan inducted into PCL Hall of Fame

Earlier this month the Pacific Coast League announced the induction of Bobby Bragan into the PCL Hall of Fame.

Bragan spent five seasons in the Pacific Coast League as a player/manager, winning the league championship in 1953 while managing and catching for the Hollywood Stars. In addition to his three seasons with the Stars, Bragan managed for two years with the Spokane Indians, compiling a 443-385 (.535) career managerial mark in the PCL.

Bragan's career also included seven years as a manager at the major league level, including three seasons with the Milwaukee Braves and one with the Atlanta Braves following the team's relocation prior to the 1966 campaign.

After his tenure with the Braves, Bragan went on to become president of the Texas League from 1969-1974, followed by a three-year term as the president of Minor League Baseball from 1975-77.

Bragan died in January at the age of 92 in Fort Worth.

Larry Jansen and Gene Lillard were also inducted into the PCL Hall of Fame.
