Player Profile: Bobby Bradley

I have seven cards of Bobby Bradley. This one is from 2001 Stadium Club.

Playing career: Bobby Bradley was the Pirates’ #1 draft pick in 1999, but his career was marred by injuries, and he only pitched in 74 minor league games. He mostly pitched well in those appearances, going 18-12 with a 3.25 ERA. A fuller account of his career can be found at Pirates Treasure Room.

Where he is now: He has gone on to success in another sport – golf. A 7-time REMAX World Long Drive Finalist and a member of the 2013 Callaway XHot Long Drive Team, he owns Charity Golf International, a long drive entertainment company that has generated over $1.25 million for various charities.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type Bobby Bra, between Bobby Brackins Wiki, referring to a rapper, and Bobby Braddock, a country music writer. The first entry when you google Bobby Bradley is not the Pirates’ former #1 pick but the #1 pick for the Indians in the 2014 draft.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Jed Bradley.
