FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
#92 LARRY BRADFORD
ATLANTA BRAVES 1977, 1979-1981
I had a friend who always called Larry "Third of an inning Bradford" for his use by Bobby Cox of mostly trying to get out one left handed batter before departing for the showers. He pitched in 104 major league games for only 103.2 innings, truly living up to his nickname. He did spend his entire brief career for the Braves, which earns him some extra points here, as well as sharing his rookie card with Bruce Benedict.
His only decision during the 70's was a win over the Phillies and Rawly Eastwick on August 21, 1979. It should be of no surprise that in that game he pitched 1/3 of an inning.
