LISTEN: Brad Lidge shares memories of his time with the late Roy Halladay

Tuesday afternoon, the sports world learned of the tragic death of Colorado native and two-time Cy Young award-winner Roy Halladay. Halladay, 40, perished in a small-plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico near Florida.

Former major-leaguer Brad Lidge, who pitched against Halladay while Lidge was at Cherry Creek High School and Halladay was at Arvada West, became Halladay’s teammate when the two of them were both with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Lidge joined Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro of Mile High Sports AM 1340 | FM 104.7 to celebrate Halladay’s life and share memories from when they shared the same clubhouse in Philadelphia.
