Clifford Brade returns to the Dallas Spirits as a savvy lead off hitter and experienced outfield with a great arm. Outside a variety of athletic ability he brought to the Dallas Spirits Baseball Club in his rookie season, Cliff will continue his role as the Spirits (35+) lead off hitter and carry those duties onto the Open (18+) squad as well.
A pick-up from the Caddo Reds Fall baseball club in 2016, Brade brings a great bat, exceptional speed on the base paths and in the outfield, and a great arm to throw out runners when needed. He quickly earned the lead off spot in 2016 with his good decision-making at the dish, as well as providing some quick hands and solid hitting which a team requires at the top of the order. On top of that, his speed on the base paths make him an easy RBI for other Spirits hitters and the teams rely on his ability to score.
Brade’s impact has become immediate as he’s quickly become a stat leader in runs and stolen bases. Clifford hails from McDade, TX. He studied Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University and also spent time at Texas Lutheran University and his early days at Elgin High School in Elgin, TX. He has a brother, Joseph and sister, Melany and he currently resides in Dallas, TX.
