Gradius "Grady" Sizemore III (born August 2, 1982) is a Major League Baseball center fielder for the Cleveland Indians. A fan favorite in Cleveland, Sizemore was acquired from the Montreal Expos in 2002 along with Brandon Phillips, Cliff Lee, and Lee Stevens in exchange for Bartolo Colón and Tim Drew.

Sizemore graduated from Cascade High School in Everett, Washington, in 2000. A high school star in football, basketball, and baseball, Sizemore signed a letter of intent to play football and baseball at the University of Washington. At the time of his high school graduation, Sizemore was Cascade's all-time leader in rushing yards with 3,081.

The Expos selected Sizemore in the third round of the 2000 Major League Baseball Draft. The team offered him a $2 million signing bonus to lure him away from college, to which Sizemore agreed.
