Two Tickets Please

One of my favorite stories about Bobby Bragan as a player goes like this.  As a player, Bragan was a friend to many writers.  His sense of humor made him easy to write about.  One year, as the Brooklyn Dodgers got ready to take on the New York Yankees in the World Series, Bragan spoke to the Dodgers secretary, Harold Parrot.  Bragan was basically a bullpen catcher for the Dodgers and his teammate and pal, Rex Barney, was a seldom-used relief pitcher.  Bragan said to Parrott, “I would like two tickets for today’s game.”  “Who are they for,” asked Parrott.  “For me and Barney,” answered Bragan, “we don’t see so good from the bullpen.”
