Chadwick Lee "Chad" Bradford is an American relief pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles in Major League Baseball. Known for his unusual delivery where he releases the pitch side-arm and very close to the ground. This is called a submarine delivery. Because of this delivery he has experienced back and abdominal pain at times.
Bradford was born in Jackson, Mississippi. His father had suffered a stroke that left him partially paralyzed, so that he could only throw underhand when playing catch with his son. Author Michael Lewis speculates that memories of his father's throwing motion may have contributed to the development of Bradford's pitching style.
