Brad Halsey: His Amazing Baseball Career

Brad last pitched in the major leagues for the Oakland Athletics in 2006. He was selected by the New York Yankees in the eighth round of the 2002 draft out of the University of Texas.

The left-hander spent one season on the Yankees, before he was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks in January 2005. He spent three years total in the big leagues, serving as the pitcher for both the Diamondbacks and Oakland Athletics for one season each.

Brad had a career record of 14-19 with a 4.84 ERA. He made 40 starts — seven of which were with the Yankees — and appeared in 88 games. He was the starting pitcher on the day Derek Jeter famously dove into the stands against the Red Sox on July 1, 2004, according to the New York Daily News.

Our thoughts go out to Brad’s family and friends during this difficult time.
