Brad Lidge is suddenly a man in demand for autograph dealers, but he’s quite comfortable in Colorado, thank you.
Brad Lidge got another chance at post-season success last October and made the most of it.
The Philadelphia Phillies closer was on the mound for the final out of the deciding game of the World Series. His strikeout of Evan Longoria produced a championship –and a million photographs. With Phils’ fans looking for anything and everything commemorating the title, Lidge autographs on everything from baseballs to celebration photographs are flying off the shelves.
He told the Rocky Mountain News he was enjoying the moment for as long as he could–settled at home with a baby on the way. And he was ready with an answer when the autograph companies called.
