Jacksonville may honor Bragan with field naming

Jacksonville SunsThe Jacksonville City Council is looking at honoring Peter Bragan Sr. by naming the playing field at the Baseball Grounds after the late owner of the Jacksonville Suns (Class AA; Southern League).

Bragan, who passed away on July 7 at the age of 89, bought the Suns in 1984 and built the franchise over the years. 

The City Council Rules Committee passed a resolution calling for the Baseball Grounds playing field to be renamed Bragan Field. Next up: full council deliberations.
