My Bro’s Pics With Sports Greats

My little brother, Dr. Bradley Beckman, is a remarkable man. Besides being an incredible doctor, a mensch, a nice guy, and blessed to be married to an incredible woman, Francine, he truly lives life to the fullest. Maybe that is how he has got so many pictures with some of the greatest sports figures [athletes and announcers and coaches, etc.] that have ever lived. I’m talking about Hall of Famers, stars, and even one of the greatest heavyweight champions of all time.

With all of these meetings with some of the great legends of sports, I think my brother would be proudest of the one he had with an Astros’ ball boy. During the last year of the Astrodome’s existence, the Houston Astros chose [from family’s letter’s] a senior citizen to be one of the “ball boy’s” for the Astros.  Our Dad, Pop, was chosen as an Astro’s ball boy after a great letter written by Brad to the Astros why he should be chosen.  This was one of the most exciting moments for our Pop and one of the happiest for us seeing him dressed up in an Astros uniform and on the field in the Astrodome as one of the ball boys.
