TTM Success - Bobby Brown

I know what you're thinking.  That I sent this ball c/o Whitney Houston.  Unfortunately (well, maybe fortunately), this is not THAT Bobby Brown.

I sent to the former AL president and former Yankee Bobby Brown on August 26, 2011 and got the ball back yesterday, September 3, 2011 making this a 8-day TAT.

Bobby Brown played for the Yankees from 1946 to 1954 and 1956.  He had 452 career hits, a .279 batting average and 22 home runs.  He played on 4 World Series Championship teams (1947, 1949, 1950 and 1951) and had career numbers of 18 hits and a .439 batting average in 41 World Series at bats.  He and Yogi Berra are the last two surviving members of the 1947 Yankees.  There are no players remaining from any earlier Yankee World Championship team.

Brown left the Yankees (and baseball) after the 1956 season to become a cardiologist.  He would return to MLB in 1984the early 1980s as the president of the Texas Rangers and then succeeded Lee MacPhail as president of the AL from 1984 to 1994.

Brown is my 31st TTM success.
