Reliving Brad Lidge's two most unforgettable moments
Nineteen new names have been added to the Hall of Fame ballot this year. To celebrate, we took a closer look at some of the most memorable moments from the careers of our favorite newcomers.
Brad Lidge was one of the most dominant closers of his generation. During his peak (2004-10) no reliever in baseball compiled more strikeouts than "Lights Out Lidge." The dude was downright dominant.
But while Lidge threw more than 600 innings in the bigs across 11 seasons, there are two moments that capture his career. We are, of course, referring to the monster dinger he allowed to Albert Pujols in Game 5 of the 2005 NLCS, and his legendary strikeout of Eric Hinske to win the 2008 World Series for the Phillies.
Check out the video at the top of the page to watch us break down the two most unforgettable moments of Lidge's awesome career.
