Dreams of playing college baseball came true for high school boys at Allen Community College. Those dreams and the accomplishments of the young men were celebrated at the first Red Devil Diamond Club Baseball Hall of Fame banquet Friday night.
Two men who were Red Devil baseball pioneers, a Red Devil team that has not been equaled since its run to the 1983 JUCO World Series, the only ACC player taken as a Major League Baseball first-round selection and an ever-faithful Red Devil baseball fan were in the inaugural class of the RDDC Baseball Hall of Fame.
“If Judith Bragg were here she’d be wearing a black fan skirt, a red Allen County sweatshirt and her ever-present smile,” said Becky Nilges, who presented Miss Bragg into the Hall of Fame. Bragg died in 2001 but left a lasting legacy of being the No. 1 Red Devil baseball fan.
