Bragan protege now in Hall of Fame
Dick Williams, who credits Bobby Bragan with being his mentor in the game of baseball, was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown on Sunday, July 27th. Williams and Bragan were featured in Saturday's Dallas Morning News.

Writes Morning News' columnist Kevin Sherrington: "Bragan indoctrinated him into Branch Rickey's famed Dodger system: throw strikes, move the runner and fundamentals, fundamentals, fundamentals.

"Bobby was a good manager, firm but fair," Williams says from New York, where he'll be inducted into Cooperstown on Sunday.

"He was my mentor as a manager, which I'm going to mention in my speech."
