As many of you may remember, I wrote a brief remembrance piece on one-time Dodger prospect, first baseman Brian Traxler toward the beginning of the season. Traxler, a fan favorite just about anywhere he played, tragically passed at age 37 back in 2004.
I received some great Brian cards in the mail today from Brian’s wife Gabby Traxler who has many great stories about Brian’s life and his days playing baseball in the Dodger organization and elsewhere. I plan to follow up more on what Brian saw and did as the season progresses with Gabby’s help, but for now I just wanted to share my treat with all of you.
Thank you for sharing these with me Gabby, and for continuing to keep Brian’s memory alive. These are great!
