History: Player-manager Bobby Bragan led the Cats to the Texas League pennant and a win over Tulsa in the post-season playoffs. Bragan was on the Dodger team that Jackie Robinson joined in 1947. (He was also a longtime Ebbets customer!). Bragan was one of baseball’s most colorful characters, and even managed a later version of the Cats in 2005 at the age of 87 (he was tossed for arguing with the umpire).
