[edit] Biographical Information

Foghorn Bradley pitched just one year in the major leagues, for the 1876 Boston Red Caps. His ERA of 2.49 was not much above the team ERA of 2.26 - the team consisting primarily of three pitchers, with Jack Manning having a lower ERA and Joe Borden having a higher ERA. Foghorn was 20 at the time, while Jack and Joe were 22 years old.

He was an umpire in the National League from 1879 through 1883 and in the American Association in 1886. He also was a substitute umpire in the 1875 NA and 1877 NL. He and Billy McLean were the two most prominent umpires in the early years of the National League, and Bradley held the record for most career games umpired through 1883 when he left the National League and was passed by McLean.
