You gotta read this AP article about Bradley going after a Kansas City Royals announcer after the announcer made some unkind remarks about Bradley on the air. My favorite part is this section:
Upon returning to the clubhouse, Bradley screamed at teammates and broke down in tears.
“I’m tired of people bringing me down,” Bradley said. “It wears on you. I love you guys, all you guys. I’m strong, but I’m not that strong. All I want to do is play baseball and make a better life for my kid than I had.”
I can't wait to see that speech dramatized in the ESPN original movie, Baseball Was His Only Game: The Milton Bradley Story.
