Bill Bradley was a member of the original American League Cleveland team, the Cleveland Blues in 1901. He and Earl Moore were the only two players from the 1901 roster to play more than three seasons and Bradley played the most with ten. His 22 triples in 1903 remain in the top ten single season totals for the Cleveland Indians more than 100 seasons later. He is also among the top ten in career triples and stolen bases. 

Bill Bradley was born in Cleveland and even though he started his career with the Chicago Cubs, he defected to the American League as soon as he could to play for his home town team. He then played the rest of his pro career for the Blues and Naps. For his time with the team, he has been inducted into the Cleveland Indians Hall of Fame.
