  • Fred Bradley and Moose Skowron, former White Sox players, pass away

    Fred Bradley was born on July 31, 1920 in Parsons, Kansas. He began his professional career in 1940 in the New York Yankees' system, though his career was interrupted by World War II. He served in the Navy. Returning to baseball in 1946, Bradley played in the Yankees' system until 1947.

    On February 24, 1948, Bradley was traded with catcher Aaron Robinson and pitcher Bill Wight to the Chicago White Sox for pitcher Eddie Lopat. On May 1, 1948, Bradley made his big league debut. He made eight relief appearances for the White Sox that year, going without a decision. He returned for one start in 1949 and despite posting a 13.50 ERA, he went without a decision again.

    Those nine games were the extent of his big league career - all told, he went 0-0 with a 5.60 ERA. In 17.2 innings, he allowed seven walks while striking out two batters (both Ks came in his debut, coincidentally).

    No article exists for Bradley, who died on April 24 at the age of 91. This is all there is:


    As for Skowron, we do have an article:

    NEW YORK — Moose Skowron, a five-time World Series champion and one of only two players to hit three home runs in Game 7s, died Friday of congestive heart failure at Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, Ill. He was 81.

    Skowron helped the New York Yankees win four titles in the 1950s and 1960s.

    “There weren’t many better guys than Moose,” said former teammate Yogi Berra, the only other player with three Game 7 homers in the Series. “He was a dear friend and a great team man. A darn good ballplayer, too.”
