Player Profile: Scott Bradley

I have 39 cards of Scott Bradley. This one is from 1986 Donruss.

Playing career: Catcher Scott Bradley played for the Yankees, White Sox, Mariners and Reds from 1984 to 1992. In 604 games, the backup backstop hit .257 with 18 HR and 184 RBI. He caught Randy Johnson’s first no-hitter in 1990.

Where he is now: He has been the head baseball coach at Princeton University for the past seventeen seasons.

Interesting facts: His brother Bob Bradley was the head coach for the US men’s soccer team in the 2010 World Cup.

My memories: I remember him being part of one of the many Yankee-White Sox trades of the mid-1980s.

Google Autocomplete results: He is fifth when you type Scott Bra, between Scott Braunstein, a money manager at hedge fund Point72, and Scott Bradlee Youtube, referring to pop music videos. The first entry when you google Scott Bradley is not the ballplayer but the composer for the classic MGM cartoons.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Kevin Bradshaw.
