[edit] Biographical Information

Steve Brodie played center field primarily during the lively ball era of the 1890s. For several years he was a regular with the 19th Century Baltimore Orioles, one of the top teams of the time. In the three full seasons he was with the Orioles, 1894 to 1896, the team won the pennant each year.

As a youngster, he was playing semi-pro ball by 1885. Brodie continued to play in the minors after his major league days, and was still playing as late as 1910.

He was nicknamed "Steve" after a daredevil of the time.

He coached baseball at a number of colleges, including Rutgers University, Princeton University, and the United States Naval Academy.

When Baltimore Stadium was built in 1922, Ned Hanlon managed to get Brodie the job there as superintendent.
