Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig issued the following statement today regarding the passing of Bobby Bragan:

"On behalf of Major League Baseball, I am terribly saddened today by the passing of Bobby Bragan. I met Bobby when he was the manager of the Milwaukee Braves and he was a dear friend of mine for nearly 50 years. He had a long and wonderful baseball career as a player, coach, manager and executive.

"The Bobby Bragan Youth Foundation, which has supported the scholastic endeavors of more than 400 eighth graders in northern Texas since 1991, is a profound legacy for one of our game's greatest ambassadors. All of baseball will miss him, and I extend my deepest sympathies to his family, friends and admirers."
