Jackie Bradley Jr. and the Red Sox

While I don't follow many Minor league players for the Red Sox, Jackie is a player that I do. For those of you who dont know who he is, Jackie is a prospect of the Boston Red Sox. He attended Prince George High School, in Richmond Virginia. Prince George is where I play some of my tournaments. But anyways, Bradley attended the University of South Carolina, before he went on to be drafted by the Boston Red Sox. He was on the College World Series team in 2010 for The University of South Carolina, and was named College World Series Most Outstanding Player. Bradley was selected 40th overall by the Boston Red Sox in the supplemental first round of the 2011 Major League Baseball draft. He has since been in the farm team system developing, to hopefully have a shot at the big leagues. I personally have met Jackie, and he is quite an inspiration. He is very friendly, and a great role model. Best of all, you can actually read his autograph! A player that actually signs his full name? That's hard to come by these days! Here is the ball I got signed by Jackie.

If you ever get the chance to meet Jackie, take it! He is an awesome guy!

Nice story Scott! That is one beautiful looking signature! I hope for the best for Jackie as well... once the Red Sox trade him away ;)

It is a nice looking autograph! And Drew, I honestly wouldn't joke about it! They trade all their good prospects for nonamers. Thats the most frustrating thing about the Red Sox! Hahaha so I wouldn't count that out. I hope he stays though. He is a nice solid player.
