Harry Leroy Halladay III, or better known in the world as Roy Halladay was an absolute star. He was the husband of Brandy and father of Ryan and Braden. The former Major League Baseball superstar pitcher was found dead following a crash of his ICON A5 aircraft in the Gulf of Mexico on November 7, 2017 at around 3:30 pm. The ace, known as “Doc Halladay” played in the league for 16 seasons-12 seasons in Toronto and 4 in Philadelphia-and was a very decorated player. His awards included: 8 time MLB All-Star, 2 Cy Young Awards, and 2 MLB wins leader. Doc also pitch a perfect game on May 29, 2010 in Miami against the Marlins and a postseason no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds on October 6, 2010-it was just the second no-hitter to take place in the playoffs.
Doc’s greatest feature was within what he did off the mound. He was a very charitable man and took that to heart. Specifically, when he was in Philly, he donated much of his time and money to help feed the homeless and the hungry. Halladay was also said to be the hardest of workers by all of his past teammates and coaches. Roy Halladay was a role model for kids who were growing up and watching the game and most of all for his own kids. He’s the second Harry that Philadelphia has lost too soon.
