George Bradshaw was considered a solid, minor-league catcher when he finally got the call in 1952. He had spent almost six years in the low minors. At his last two stops – in Statesville and Morganton in North Carolina – he had smashed more than 30 homer runs and had hit close to .330.
That attracted the attention of the Washington Senators. When his time came, though, Bradshaw lasted about a month in Washington. He appeared in 10 games and hit just over .200. He finished his baseball career as, once again, a solid minor-league catcher.
