Chief Bender Award
As a former resident and Brainerd native, I’m always interested in news about home, even though I haven’t lived there since 1952.
Recently I read that the Tampa Rays minor league manager was awarded the Chief Bender Award, who was an American Indian and born in Brainerd. He is also in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
