Bragan, a former major league baseball player, manager, and coach, established the Bobby Bragan Youth Foundation in 1991 to encourage children to stay in school and pursue their educational and career dreams. The foundation recognizes outstanding eighth graders each year by awarding scholarships for use toward first-year college tuition.
