Wiki

Chadwick Lee "Chad" Bradford (born September 14, 1974) is an American relief pitcher for the Tampa Bay Rays in Major League Baseball. He is 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.

According to Michael Lewis's Moneyball, Bradford attended Central Hinds Academy in Jackson. The Baseball Cube differs, stating that Bradford went to Byram High School. Unlike most players who become major leaguers, he had not exhibited outstanding athletic talent through the early years of high school. But his high school coach suggested he try sidearm pitching after learning some tips about the approach from a professional player. This technique brought him enough success to get a spot on the teams of Hinds Community College and the University of Southern Mississippi.
