Brooklyn Dodger Ralph Branca holds spring fundraiser to benefit Sports Angels charity

Ralph Branca with author
Famed Brooklyn Dodger pitcher Ralph Branca proceeded over an evening of "casino and cocktails" to benefit the Sports Angels charity at Langan's Pub and Restaurant in Manhattan earlier this week. Branca is the vice-chairman of Sports Angels, which is a non-profit organization that works to create opportunities for youth sports participation.

Branca, now 85, has been able to use his baseball celebrity and business connections to create a network for Sports Angels that has allowed them to expand since their 2005 inception. "We use our spring fundraiser get our supporters together and create awareness about what we do," Branca said.
