Almost 92, former big league skipper Bobby Bragan is working hard as ever--to sell a collection of baseballs signed by every Cy Young award winner.


He's still spinning yarns as he reaches his 92nd birthday and Bobby Bragan will have another good one to tell soon.
The jovial former Milwaukee Braves manager has been helping an associate gather autographed baseballs from every Cy Young award winner since the honor began in 1956. The goal is to now sell them all to one history-minded...and charitable buyer.

It's a project two years in the making and the proceeds from what they hope will be a sale will benefit Bragan's Youth Foundation as well as the Special Olympics. They're definitely looking for a buyer with some deep pockets to buy all 78 balls in the special collection.
The two men sat down to talk about their quest with the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram (http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/story/1719643.html).
