Halfway To History! Bradley Ups Streak To 28

JBJ 28 iso

Jackie Bradley Jr. didn’t waste any time Tuesday night getting halfway to one of the most iconic number in sports.  The Gamecock great cracked the first pitch of the 2nd inning in Boston’s home game against Colorado for a double off the Green Monster, extending his hitting streak to 28 straight games.

Bradley is now halfway to Joe DiMaggio’s Major League record 56-game hitting streak set in 1941.

The 28-game streak for Bradley is the longest by a Boston player since 2005 and tied for the 5th-longest streak in Red Sox history.  Dom DiMaggio, Joe’s brother, has the Red Sox record hitting streak at 34 consecutive games.

Bradley helped lead the Gamecocks to back-to-back national championships in 2010 & 11.  He was the College World Series most outstanding player in 2010.

Bradley is just the 15th major league player in the 21st century to have a hit streak of at least 28 games.
