Director of Market Development
The circle of life has brought Brad Beattie back to baseball. After a short stint in the Baltimore Orioles organization, his shirt and tie career started in the grocery business with Procter & Gamble. After time with Del Monte and Premier Marketing, he spent over 20 years with a local supermarket chain, Pyramid Foods.
With his time at Pyramid Foods, he was fortunate to work with local charities, community events and sports venues. Brad came back to baseball to resurrect the former Price Cutter Park. As the General Manager, U.S. Baseball was restarted in 2016, and housed Drury Baseball and the Show-Me Collegiate League.
In late 2017, Brad made his way back to professional baseball with the Springfield Cardinals as their new Director of Market Development, where he works with sponsors, Springfield Cardinals staff, and fans.
Known as Papa to his grandkids, Brad to his Son-in-law, Dad to Brittney, Beau and Breann, and names to remain private from Lyn; he is fortunate to love and be loved by them all. Brad's love of baseball runs deep within his family, as his father Bob and brother Burt also played professionally. The Springfield Cardinals have allowed Brad to see his friends at baseball games, participate in age-defined baseball, and be a positive member of the community.
