Chad Bradford Autographs
An American relief pitcher, Chad Bradford plays for the Baltimore Orioles in Major League Baseball. He was born on September 14, 1974 in Jackson, Mississippi and was originally named Chadwick Lee Bradford. Bradford is famous for his unusual delivery where he releases the pitch side-arm and is very close to the ground. This kind of unique delivery is called submarine delivery. He had studied in Byram High School in Jackson but he had not shown an outstanding athletic talent during his high school years. When his high school coach told him to try sidearm pitching he was successful in the kind of pitching and he got a spot on the teams of Hinds Community College and also in the University of Southern Mississippi. He was first drafted by the Chicago White Sox in 1994 but he decided to stay in college up to 1996. The only major league team who had scouted him was the White Sox and they re-drafted him during the 13th round of the 1996 MLB Draft. He was 23 years old when he made his major league debut in 1998. It was in 1999 when Bradford only made a short stop during the majors with the rest of the season he spent with the triple-A Charlotte Knights. In 2000, he was triumphant as a September call-up and he even pitched in the American league Division Series. He was a specialty reliever for the A's in 2001-2004. He was traded to the Boston Red Sox for Jay Payton in July 2005. He had accomplished mixed results in Boston where he posted a 3.86 ERA with a 1.414 walks plus hits per inning pitched even if he only pitched 23.3 innings. He was signed by the Mets as a free agent and he was reunited with Rick Peterson who is his pitching coach from the Athletics. It was on November 28, 2006 when he signed a three-year contract with the Baltimore Orioles.
