My brother Vic, my nieces Krystal and Kirsten. Notice Kirsten putting some horns on Vic.
Kirsten now is also wearing glasses. I love you guys!
Vicente Padilla signs with the Dodgers for One Year.
the right-hander will get $4 million plus a $1-million signing bonus and could earn another $1 million in incentives. He was 4-0 for L.A. in the final stretch of the regular season.
And no, my brother Vic does not look like Vicente!
Rest in peace Bobby Bragan.
Robert Randall Bragan was born in Birmingham, Ala., on Oct. 30, 1917. He played parts of seven seasons from 1940-48 for the Philadelphia Phillies and the Brooklyn Dodgers, playing mostly shortstop and catcher and batting .240 for his career. He missed the 1945 and ’46 seasons to serve in the U.S. military.
In 1947, he made his only plate appearance in a World Series game, delivering a pinch-hit double for the Dodgers.
I’ve been working on a post that is not ready yet but it has all the surviving Dodgers that played in Brooklyn. Now I got to update my list to drop Mr. Bragan. Down to 63 now.
