BiographyEdit

Born in Franklin, Virginia, Bradshaw graduated from Windsor High School (Virginia) and attended Norfolk State University. He was selected by the St. Louis Cardinals in the ninth round of the 1990 Major League Baseball Draft and played for five seasons in the Cardinals' minor league system, and stole 65 bases in the Class A South Atlantic League. As a rookie with the 1995 Cardinals, Bradshaw had three hits in his first three MLB at bats from May 4-6 against the Houston Astros.[2] But he spent most of that season at Triple-A Louisville.

In parts of two seasons with the Cardinals (1995–96), he collected 17 total hits in 34 games played, including two doubles and one triple. His minor league career extended until 1999 and included time in the minor league organizations of the Royals and Montreal Expos.
