JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- City Council unanimously approved a bill Tuesday to name the field at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville after the late Peter Bragan Sr., who owned the Double-A Jacksonville Suns.
Our Florida Times-Union news partner reported the story, quoting Bragan's son, Peter Bragan Jr. as saying, "There were a lot of people in the community, councilmen such as Bill Bishop and Warren Jones, and the media, who brought up this idea and gave it support almost immediately after Dad passed."
Bragan Jr. is president of the Suns. His father died July 7th at age 89.
