According to Bloomburg Businessweek (via Philly.com), Roy Halladay is a very powerful athlete.

Taking into account off-the-field factors like endorsements and earning potential, as well as the stuff between the lines like stats, Roy Halladay ranked 30th in sports after being previously unranked. At the top of the list were the usual stars, here’s the top 10:

  • 1. Peyton Manning
  • 2. Shaun White
  • 3. Tiger Woods
  • 4. Phil Mickleson
  • 5. Tom Brady
  • 6. Shaquille O’Neal
  • 7. Drew Brees
  • 8. Lance Armstrong
  • 9. Albert Pujols
  • 10. Apolo Anton Ohno

Ranking 30th, Halladay is now among some of the most recognizable names in the world. It’s quite a impressive leap for someone who was not well known outside of the game of baseball before last season. However, a perfect game, a no-hitter in the postseason, and a Cy Young award vaulted him into rarefied air.

Ryan Howard also made the list, coming in at No. 67, a sharp decline from last years No. 14 ranking.
