Major League Baseball Player. He was an early pitching star of Major League Baseball, playing for the St. Louis Brown Stockings of the National Assocation and the National League, the Chicago White Stockings, Troy Trojans, Providence Grays, and Cleveland Blues of the National League, the Philadelphia Athletics of the American Association League, and the Cincinnati Outlaw Reds of the Union Assocation league. On July 15, 1876, he pitched the National League's first ever no-hitter, as St. Louis defeated Hartford Blue Notes 2-0. That same year, the League's first season, the righthander pitched every one of St. Louis's 64 games and led them to a second-place finish with 45 wins. His 16 shutouts set a Major League record tied only by Grover Alexander 40 years later. Brought to Chicago the next season to take over the pitching for Al Spalding, he was far less effective, and for the rest of his career played at third base as often as he pitched. Following his retirement from the big leagues in 1888, Bradley worked as a Philadelphia policeman. (bio by: Schuler)
