Grady Sizemore

Grady Sizemore III (born August 2, 1982 in Seattle, Washington) is an American baseball player. He currently plays for the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball. His current position for the Indians is center fielder. In 2002, he was traded to the Cleveland Indians by the Montreal Expos.

In 2006, Sizemore was selected to his first All-Star Game as a reserve outfielder. He was 0-2 while batting in the All-Star Game.

Sizemore graduated from Cascade High School in Everett, Washington in 2000. A notable high school star in football, basketball, and baseball, Sizemore signed a letter of intent to play football and baseball at the University of Washington. At the time of his high school graduation, Sizemore was the Cascade all-time leader in rushing yards with 3,081 yards and interceptions with 16.

Sizemore did not play for the college because the Expos selected Sizemore in the 3rd round of the 2000 Draft. The team offered him a $2 million signing bonus for him not to play for the college. Sizemore signed and almost immediately began his quick climb to the big leagues. Sizemore currently resides in Mill Creek, Washington and Tempe, Arizona.
