Bobby Bragan

Born on today's date, Bobby Bragan.

"Oh, I wasn't belligerent. I didn't call Jackie names or insult him in that way. I respected his ability, and it was clear to me like it was to everyone else that he was the best player we had. But on those first train rides, I can guarantee you I wasn't going to sit at the same dining table with Jackie or even have a conversation with him." - on requesting a trade from the Dodgers when they signed Jackie Robinson
