Biographical Information[edit]

Brady Conlan is an infielder.

Conlan hit .235/.276/.265 for Cal State Dominguez Hills in 2013. He was 6 for 16 with a walk and a double for 2014 before he was injured and was redshirted. In 2015, he batted .344/.386/.538 with 21 doubles and 43 RBI in 54 games. He led the California Collegiate Athletic Association in hits, was second in doubles and was 4th in home runs (6). He was named MVP of the 2015 California Collegiate Athletic Association Tournament.

He then joined the Philippines national team for the 2017 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers in February 2016. Starting at third base and hitting 5th in their opener, he had their lone RBI in a 11-1 loss to Australia, singling off Steven Kent to score Eric Farris in the first for a 1-0 lead. He later made a game-ending two-run error on an Allan de San Miguel grounder that made it a mercy rule game in the bottom of the 7th. In the team's second game against New Zealand, he hit a two-run homer off Andrew Marck in the 4th to briefly tie the game at 3-all though they again lost. His three RBI led the Philippines on the event, as many as former major leaguers Farris and Chris Aguila. His 1286 OPS was second to Farris. For the Sydney Qualifiers, he was 5th in OPS, between Keegan Swanepoel and Boss Moanaroa.

While playing professionally, Conlan also began his coaching career as an assistant coach for his alma mater. He was a coach there during the 2017-2018 seasons and possibly the 2019 season. Conlan spent the summer of 2019 as an assistant coach with the Arroyo Seco Saints of the California Collegiate League. He then moved to California State University, Northridge in fall 2019 as their Director of Player Development.

Conlan's stay at Northridge was short-lived as the Los Angeles Dodgers hired him for a hitting coach position with the one of their Dominican Summer League teams in 2020 before the coronavirus pandemic forced the cancellation of the minor league season. He moved to the Pittsburgh Pirates organization as a coach with the Bradenton Marauders in 2021. Conlan moved up the minor league hierarchy in 2022 to serve as the Integrated Baseball Performance Coach (AKA Development Coach) for the Indianapolis Indians in 2022-2023. He was then hitting coach of the Altoona Curve in 2024.
