The Baltimore Orioles are having one of their best seasons in over a decade making a nice run to the post season, hoping to take out their divisional rival, New York Yankees. Sporting the throw back 1983 hats all this year, the Orioles aren’t looking back with an exciting young team including Adam Jones, Nick Markakis, Matt Wieters and Chris Davis.
Some of this success can be attributed to Orioles legend and fan favorite, Brady Anderson who has taken the role of special assistant to general manager Dan Duquette for the 2012 season. Brady provides motivation, mentoring, player development and personal training to many O’s players. He has also provided broadcasting for Orioles games in the past.
Anderson has worked with several Orioles over the past few winters as a health and conditioning coach, including current star Adam Jones, Nolan Reimold and Brian Matusz. Anderson, 48, was a three-time all-star in his 15-season career as a centerfielder, which included 14 years with the Orioles. He’s best remembered for clubbing 50 homers from the leadoff spot in 1996, including numerous wall crashing catches.
This offseason, he also just launched his official website, www.BradyAnderson9.com, where corporations can book Brady for corporate appearances, autograph signings, VIP Meet & Greets and product endorsements.
Prior to the 2012 season, Brady along with teammate Cal traveled to Japan as “Baseball Ambassadors” that included visits to several towns affected by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. During the trip to Japan, Anderson and Ripken hosted baseball and softball clinics, and attended numerous events with key leaders.
A true gamer throughout his career, Anderson still ranks among the top ten in Orioles career batting leaders for games (1759), at-bats (6,271), runs (1,044), total bases (2,698), hits (1,614), doubles (329), triples (64), home runs (209), RBI (744), extra base hits (602), stolen bases (307), and walks (927). He holds the single-season records for total bases (369 in 1996), home runs (50 in 1996), extra base hits (92 in 1996), and hit by pitch (24 in 1999).
