Hey it’s Scott Alan,
A tough day for Blue Jays, Phillies and baseball fans alike – as future Hall of Fame pitcher Roy Halladay died in a plane crash. He was 40.
He was piloting his small single-engine aircraft when it crashed into the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida. The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating.
Halladay was one of the finest pitchers of his generation, throwing a perfect game, a no-hitter, he won the Cy Young Award twice and appeared in the Major League Baseball All-Star game 8 times.
He pitched for the Toronto Blue Jays for 11 seasons and the Philadelphia Phillies for four. He retired from baseball nearly four years ago because of a bad shoulder.
Rest in peace, Doc.
