Chad Elton Green is a former switch-hitting, right-handed minor league baseball player. An outfielder, he attended Mentor High School and then the University of Kentucky. Originally drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the ninth round of the 1993 draft, Green opted not to sign. He competed for the United States in the 1996 Olympics, helping the U.S. win the bronze medal. Shortly thereafter, Green was drafted eighth overall by the Milwaukee Brewers. He started his professional career that season, batting .358 in 21 games with the Ogden Raptors. He also showed good speed, stealing 12 bases. Standing at 5'10", 180 pounds, Green's 1997 season was not very successful. Playing for the High-A Stockton Ports, Green hit only .250 in 127 games. In 513 at-bats, he struck out 138 times and walked only 37 times. He did steal what would be a career high 37 bases that season. Even though he did not do too well in 1997, he was still considered the 99th best prospect by Baseball America. He started with Stockton in 1998, hitting .344 with 22 steals in 40 games. He was promoted to the Double-A El Paso Diablos, where he played seven games and did not collect a single hit in six at-bats.
