Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: The World Mourns Roy Halladay
A look back at Roy Halladay, Evan Longoria’s Gold Glove, and a trade proposal
Yesterday turned into very solemn day as news broke that Roy Halladay’s plane had crashed into the Gulf of Mexico.
Roy Halladay, one of the most dominant pitchers of his generation, tragically passed away after crashing his private plane into the Gulf of Mexico. Halladay was treasured by the
baseball world and was held in the highest regard among his peers. He was just 40 years old. He leaves behind his wife of 20 years and two children.
Over his years in the majors from 1998 to 2013, Halladay won two Cy Young awards and was a eight time All-Star. During his first taste of the playoffs in 2010 while with the Phillies, Halladay threw a no-hitter. Since the 2009 season, Halladay still has thrown the most complete games despite retiring following the 2013 season. He spent most of his career carving through the American League East with the Toronto Blue Jays. He would traded to Philadelphia during the 2010 season, with whom he would spend the rest of his major league career.
