It is a very sad day for many baseball fans.
Hours ago, former Pitcher Roy Halladay passed away in a plane crash. Halladay was flying his single-engine plane over the Gulf of Mexico and was the only one in the aircraft. He was only 40 years old.
A two-time Cy Young Award winner, Halladay would win that coveted award in both leagues. Splitting his career between the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies, Halladay retired in 2013 with a record of 203 and 105 with 2,117 Strikeouts. An eight time All Star, he pitched a perfect game in 2010 and followed up with a no-hitter in the post season.
Halladay is eligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2019.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to extend our condolences to the friends and family of Roy Halladay.
