1991 Topps #717 - Phil Bradley

On this day in 1959, Phil Bradley was born.

Consider this card Phil Bradley's last taste of the majors. The White Sox acquired Phil from the Baltimore Orioles on July 30, 1990 for fan favorite Ron Kittle. While the Sox got Kitty back the next year, Bradley was off to Japan to play with the Yomiuri Giants. He spent 1992 in the minors with the California Angels and the Chicago Cubs, but never made it back to the majors.

Phil's low batting average and spotty fielding with the Sox assured he wouldn't be back in 1991. On a side note, Bradley finished first in one category in 1990; hit by pitch, with eleven.
