There was something a little miraculous, a little magical, a little out of the ordinary on a chilled November evening in Fort Worth on Tuesday. People were talking baseball.

Blame/credit the guy we call Mr. Baseball around here: the amazing Bobby Bragan.

On a night when you couldn’t turn around without bumping into somebody who is somebody in baseball, such as Bobby Valentine, or Eddie Robinson, or Dr. Bobby Brown, in the midst of All-Stars such as Michael Young and Ian Kinsler, on an evening on which Mr. Ranger, Tom Grieve, was deservedly the chief honoree, the man who continues to stand above it all, like a revered orchestra leader, is baseball’s No. 1 goodwill ambassador in Fort Worth, Robert Randall Bragan.

And what sweet music to the ears.

He just turned 91 three weeks ago, and most of us can only dream about having half his energy and drive.

Grieve honored at BBYF Gala

Former player, GM, and current TV analyst Tom Grieve was honored on Tuesday with the Bobby Bragan Lifetime Achievement Award at the Foundation's annual Gala at the Fort Worth Convention Center.

Also recognized at the Gala were the 2009 graduating seniors who were awarded scholarships in 2005.

A host of former and current Rangers players and front office personnel were on hand for the event. All-Star infielders Michael Young and Ian Kinsler signed autographs at the VIP reception and attendees included Dr. Bobby Brown, Jim Sundberg, Dale Petroskey, Joe Macko and Josh Lewin.
