ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.-- Minor League Baseball President Pat O'Conner issued the following statement regarding the passing last night of Bobby Bragan, who served as the seventh MiLB President from 1976-78:

"Bobby Bragan had a long and distinguished career in baseball. He served our game in multiple capacities, including as Minor League Baseball President from 1976-78. Bobby was one of the more colorful characters in baseball and he will be sorely missed.
