He’s also a longtime friend of Jacksonville’s storied Bragan family. That’s why they’re honoring Woodard this month at the Peter Bragan for Better Baseball Foundation.

The foundation was established to serve as a permanent endowment to fund local baseball endeavors and a future cultural destination, The Jacksonville Baseball Museum.
