Baseball Player
    (August 13, 1983- )
    Born in Phoenix, Arizona
    Pitcher for the Oakland Athletics (2007- )
    Pitched the 19th perfect game in Major League history (May 9, 2010)
    He was kicked off his high school baseball team for poor grades and cutting classes.
    He shouted at Alex Rodriguez after A-Rod cut across the mound while returning to first base (April 22, 2010).
    Rodriguez responded, 'That was a little surprising. I've never quite heard that -- especially from a guy that has a handful of wins in his career.' (Braden had an 18-23 record at the time.)
    Braden then suggested he might settle the dispute with his fists the next time the A's meet the Yankees.
    He has a tattoo of the number '209' (the area code for his hometown of Stockton, California).
    He is a left-hander.
    He was raised by a single mom who died from skin cancer when he was a senior in high school.
    His grandmother drives from Stockton to Oakland each time he pitches at home.
    Noting that his perfect game came on Mother's Day, he said, 'That's the biggest thing to be able to give [my grandmother] something like this on a day of this magnitude, considering everything we've been through together. It's more about her for me.'
