American Major League Baseball pitcher Daniel Paul Bard, born on June 25, 1985, plays for the Colorado Rockies. He had previously played from 2009 through 2013 for the Boston Red Sox.
Bard had 25 straight scoreless outings in 2011, breaking the Red Sox franchise record. He pitched at a maximum speed of 102 mph (164 kph). Bard’s playing career was put on hold in later years as he lost control of his pitches.
He pitched in two major league games in 2013, but before retiring in 2017 to become a player mentor, he played for multiple minor league clubs.
After regaining control in 2020, Bard made a comeback as a player, made it into the Rockies’ MLB team, and later won Comeback Player of the Year honors in the National League while pitching in relief for them.
Bard threw a pitching practice for scouts in February 2020 and declared he will make a return effort. Bard joined the Colorado Rockies on February 22, 2020, and was later assigned to their Triple-A affiliate, the Albuquerque Isotopes.
Bard agreed to a $4.4 million contract with the Rockies on March 22, 2022, avoiding salary arbitration.
