93 years ago, on this day (April 7th) Bobby Doerr was born. One of only 2 surviving members of the original 1936 PCL Padres team, Doerr only spent one season in San Diego but left a lasting impact. Without guys like Doerr, Ted Williams and Vince DiMaggio who knows if the team would be where it is today? So with that said….Thank you Mr. Doerr for your contributions to San Diego baseball and I hope you have a Happy Birthday!!
