Sidick, a Cecil Township native, returns for a record sixth season in 2010. Last season, he set league career records in games played (430), at-bats (1,625), hits (460) and walks (256), adding to his existing league career record for triples (44). He is the team all-time career leader in virtually every offensive category, including games, at-bats, hits, runs (313), triples, walks, and stolen bases (113). He holds the team and league single-season record with 16 triples in 2006, as well as the team single-season records in at-bats (393 in 2006), and walks (75 in 2007).

A career .283 hitter, Sidick batted .240 in 2009, with 61 runs, 81 hits, nine doubles, seven triples, nine homeruns and 38 RBI. In 2008, he batted .311 with a career high in doubles (16) and RBI (45) and a league-leading nine triples.

Following the 2006 season, Sidick was recognized by Baseball America as one of the top prospects in independent league baseball that year.

The Canon-McMillan High School and Marietta (OH) College graduate made his professional baseball debut with the Wild Things in 2005 with a .333 batting average, three home runs, 29 RBI and 15 stolen bases. He was signed by the Wild Things as a non-drafted free agent on June 9, 2005 from Marietta. A two-time NCAA Division III All-American and Jack Rafeld Ohio Athletic Conference Player of the Year, Sidick led Marietta in batting average (.384), slugging percentage (.768), on-base percentage (.500), runs scored (55), triples (7), home runs (12), total bases (116), walks (32) and stolen bases (26). He was also second on the team in hits (58) and RBI (40) during his senior season in 2005. He was the third former Marietta player to appear for the Wild Things following RHP David Bradley (02-03) and C/DH Jay Coakley (02-04).
