Autograph of the Week: Phillies prospect Jesse Biddle
Jesse Biddle, a 22-year-old Philadelphia native, has been ranked among the top prospects in baseball for the past three seasons.
Last summer, Biddle pitched at CitiField in the All-Star Futures game. This summer, he spent time recovering from a concussion caused by a piece of hail.
Though Biddle’s final record with the Reading Fightin Phils is an ugly one (3-10, 5.03 ERA, 1.482 WHIP), he had several strong performances late in the season that offer hope for a better 2015.
I’ve had this relic card from Topps’ 2011 Pro Debut set for a few years now. I was finally able to get it signed last weekend when Reading visited Trenton for a season-ending series.
Although my friend Bart and I decided to leave before the rain-delayed game eventually started, I was able to get a couple dozen baseball cards signed before the bad weather arrived.
