There are times when being a Red Sox fan or a Yankee fan doesn’t matter. Because at our hearts, we’re all baseball fans. And beyond that, we’re all people.
Playing for as many teams as he did in his nine-year career, Cory Lidle had a lot of teammates and made a lot of friends. He was a baseball player but more importantly, he was a father, son and husband.
My sympathies and condolences to Lidle’s friends, teammates and family.
ETA: The Dugout gets it exactly right. Well played, sirs.
