Harry Leroy Halladay III (May 14, 1977 November 7, 2017), known
commonly as Roy Halladay and often nicknamed "Doc", was an American
professional baseball player who pitched in Major League Baseball (MLB)
for the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies between 1998 and 2013.
His nickname, coined by Toronto Blue Jays announcer Tom Cheek, was a
reference to Wild West gunslinger Doc Holliday.
Halladay was the Blue Jays' first draft selection in the 1995 Major League
Baseball draft, the 17th pick overall, and played for the team from 1998
through 2009, after which he was traded to Philadelphia. Halladay was
known for his ability to pitch deep into games effectively and, at the
time of his retirement, was the active major league leader in complete
games with 67, including 20 shutouts.
On May 29, 2010, Halladay pitched the 20th perfect game in MLB history,
beating the Florida Marlins by a score of 10. On October 6, 2010, in
his first postseason start, Halladay threw the second no-hitter in MLB
postseason history (Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series
being the first) against the Cincinnati Reds in Game 1 of the 2010
NLDS. It was his second no-hitter of the year (following the May 29
perfect game), making Halladay the fifth pitcher in major league history
(and the first since Nolan Ryan in 1973) to throw multiple no-hitters in
the same season. During the 2012 season, he became the 67th pitcher to
record 2,000 strikeouts. Halladay was also one of six pitchers in MLB
history to win the Cy Young Award in both the American and National
On November 7, 2017, Halladay died after his ICON A5 amphibious plane
crashed into the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida.

Philadelphia Phillies (20102013)
On December 15, 2009, the Blue Jays traded Halladay to the Philadelphia
Phillies for minor league prospects Travis d'Arnaud, Kyle Drabek, and
Michael Taylor. He agreed to a contract extension worth US$60 million
that included a US$20 million vesting option for a fourth season.
On Opening Day, Halladay pitched seven innings while giving up a run
against the Washington Nationals in his first game with the Phillies. He
had nine strikeouts and allowed six hits. He also drove in his second
career RBI and earned his first win of the season. He followed this start
with a complete game on April 11 against the Houston Astros, giving up one
unearned run while striking out eight and not giving up any walks in the
Phillies' 21 victory.
Halladay pitched his first shutout in the National League, against the
Atlanta Braves on April 21, becoming the first pitcher to reach four wins
in the 2010 season. On May 1, Halladay pitched his second shutout of the
season, limiting the New York Mets to three hits and striking out six.
On September 21, Halladay became the first Phillies pitcher to win 20
games in a season since Steve Carlton accomplished it in 1982. He was the
first right-handed Phillies pitcher to accomplish the feat since Robin
Roberts in 1955. One week later, on September 27, he completed his
21st victory, helping the Phillies clinch their fourth consecutive
National League East title, and the Phillies finished with the best
regular season record in MLB.
Halladay made his first postseason start in Game One of the National
League Division Series, as the Phillies squared off against the Cincinnati
Reds. Halladay threw a no-hitter, giving up only one walk (to Jay Bruce in
the fifth inning) in a 40 victory. Halladay's was only the second
postseason no-hitter in Major League Baseball history, and the first since
Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series. He threw only 104
pitches. Halladay become the first pitcher in Major League history to
throw a perfect game and a no-hitter in the same season. The Phillies
swept the Reds in three games to advance to their third consecutive
National League Championship Series, where they faced the San Francisco
Giants. Halladay started Games One and Five, which were one of the most
touted postseason pitching matchups in recent history as he faced another
former Cy Young winner in both games, Tim Lincecum. Halladay lost Game One
43 and won Game Five 42, as the Phillies were eliminated in six games by
the Giants, who went on to win the World Series.
Halladay was named by his peers as the Players Choice Awards NL
Outstanding Pitcher. He was also unanimously chosen as the recipient of
the 2010 National League Cy Young Award, becoming the first Phillie to win
the award since Steve Bedrosian in 1987 and only the fifth pitcher in MLB
history to win the award in both leagues, joining Gaylord Perry, Pedro
Martez, Randy Johnson and Roger Clemens. He was likewise selected as the
Sporting News NL Pitcher of the Year, the USA Today NL Cy Young, the
Baseball Prospectus Internet Baseball Awards NL Cy Young, and the
winner of the NLBM Wilbur "Bullet" Rogan Legacy Award (NL Pitcher of the
Year). He also was named the MLB "This Year in Baseball Awards" Starting
Pitcher of the Year. Baseball Digest named him its Pitcher of the Year
(including both leagues). Baseball America named him its Major League
Player of the Year (including all positions in both leagues). MLB
named him its "MLB Clutch Performer of the Year". He was given the
Heart & Hustle Award by the Major League Baseball Players Alumni
Association. He was also named Pro Athlete of the Year by both the
Sporting News and the Philadelphia Sports Writers
Association and Sportsperson of the Year by the
Philadelphia Daily News. The Philadelphia chapter of the Baseball Writers'
Association of America presented him the "Steve Carlton Most Valuable
Pitcher" and "Dallas Green Special Achievement" awards.
In ?250 2/3 innings pitched, Halladay finished the 2010 regular season
with a 2110 record and a 2.44 ERA, setting a career high with 219
strikeouts while issuing just 30 walks. He led the National league in
wins, innings pitched, and complete games (9), including 4 shutouts. He
became just the seventh pitcher in the history of Major League baseball to
pitch 250 or more innings with 30 or fewer walks, the first pitcher to do
so since Grover Cleveland Alexander in 1923 with the Chicago Cubs.
On May 29, 2010, Halladay pitched the 20th perfect game in MLB history,
against the Florida Marlins in Miami, retiring all 27 batters and striking
out 11, allowing no hits, runs, walks, or errors. This was the first
time in the modern era that two pitchers (Dallas Braden of the Oakland A's
and Halladay) had thrown perfect games in the same month and that multiple
perfect games had been achieved in the same season. When Halladay's former
manager, Cito Gaston, called to congratulate him, Halladay was unable to
take the call because he was busy with the post-game media frenzy. On
August 24, 2010, to commemorate his perfect game, Halladay presented
around 60 Swiss-made Baume and Mercier watches he had purchased to
everyone in the clubhouse. The watches were presented in brown boxes that
bore the inscription: "We did it together. Thanks, Roy Halladay."
Additionally, the back of each watch was engraved with the date of the
game, the line score, and the individual recipient's name.
Roy Halladay and Don Larsen, the only two pitchers to throw postseason
no-hitters in MLB history
On October 6, 2010, in his first postseason appearance, Halladay pitched a
no-hitter (his second of the season), against the Cincinnati Reds in the
first game of the National League Division Series (NLDS). He became the
second player ever to pitch a no-hitter in the postseason, joining Don
Larsen of the 1956 New York Yankees, who pitched a perfect game in the
World Series. He also became the first pitcher since Nolan Ryan in 1973 to
throw two no-hitters in a season, as well as the seventh pitcher to hurl
both a perfect game and a regular no-hitter in his career, joining Cy
Young, Addie Joss, Jim Bunning, Sandy Koufax, Randy Johnson, and Mark
Buehrle. Halladay allowed just one walk to right fielder Jay Bruce with
two outs in the fifth inning, and faced just one batter above the minimum
27. This also marked the first time in Major League history that a
pitcher threw a perfect game and a no-hitter in the same season. The fans
voted his no-hitter as the "This Year in Baseball Awards" Postseason
Moment of the Year.
For the 2011 season, Halladay was joined by Cliff Lee, who before the 2010
season had been traded away from the Phillies shortly before Halladay
joined. The resulting starting pitching lineup of Halladay, Lee, Cole
Hamels, Roy Oswalt and Joe Blanton had commentators dub it one of the best
rotations ever assembled. Halladay, Oswalt, Lee, and
Hamels were dubbed the 'Phantastic Phour' by fans and the media.
On April 24, 2011, Halladay struck out 14 and allowed just 5 hits in the
game as his team swept the San Diego Padres in all four games. Halladay
took a two-hitter into the ninth before allowing three straight singles.
He allowed just one run and won, 31.

Second fatal crash this year involving Icon A5 01:09
Former pitcher Roy Halladay killed in a plane crash off Florida's Gulf
NTSB cited pilot error in Icon chief test pilot's fatal crash in May
(CNN)Designed to make flying simple, the Icon A5 has been described as a
sports car with wings that maneuvers like a Jet Ski.
Flying a sports car with wings
Former Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies pitching great Roy
Halladay died Tuesday in a plane crash in the A5, which was found upside
down in shallow water off Florida's Gulf Coast. Halladay, 40, was the only
person on the two-seater plane.
It was the second fatal crash involving the A5 this year.
In May, Jon Karkow, Icon's chief test pilot who was responsible for the
plane's design, died in a crash in California. Cagri Sever, a new employee
who was in the passenger's seat, also was killed.
The National Transportation Safety Board concluded that the probable cause
of that accident was pilot error. The plane had been flying at Lake
Berryessa, a reservoir with coves, canyons and steep rising terrain.
"It is likely that the pilot mistakenly thought the canyon that he entered
was a different canyon that led to the larger, open portion of the lake,"
according to the NTSB's aviation accident report.
Instead, there was no exit from that canyon. "The airplane would have not
been able to climb out of the rising terrain that surrounded the area,
which led to his failure to maintain clearance from terrain," according to
the NTSB report.
In a May statement, Shane Sullivan, Icon's director of flight, said,
"We're unsure why the plane flew into such a narrow canyon that had no
Icon initially suspended all flight operations of the A5 fleet after the
accident but resumed them after NTSB's preliminary report.
NTSB embarks on probe
The NTSB is investigating the latest crash.
Noreen Price, the investigator in charge, told reporters on Wednesday the
craft hit waters near New Port Richey at 12:06 p.m. on Tuesday after
departing Odessa. She said there was one occupant and he received fatal
The plane was located in 4 feet of water, Price said, and "all major
components were accounted for."
"It looked like a high energy impact but all the pieces were there. Most
everything was attached but it was a high-energy impact."
She said the wreckage was recovered and was to be moved to a secure
facility for a more detailed review. Two data recorders have been
recovered and will be sent to the NTSB lab, she said.
A timeline is being started and witness interviews have begun, she said.
Price said the pilot racked up 700 flight hours, according to his logbook.
The NTSB will be looking at weather and air traffic. Investigators will be
looking at the pilot's training, experience and medical status.
Any witnesses who have photos or videos of the plane flying or the
accident should contact the NTSB at [hidden email].
"The full investigation will take approximately one to two years," she
There were no distress calls from the plane, the Pasco County, Florida,
Sheriff's Office said. Price also said the preliminary information
indicates that no mayday call was made.

A fierce competitor on the mound, Roy Halladay was generous and gentle
away from the field.
The eight-time All-Star loved his family, baseball and flying.
Halladay's passion for piloting cost him his life Tuesday when his private
plane crashed into the Gulf of Mexico. He was 40.
Former teammates, coaches and fans mourned the sudden loss of the beloved
former player, who was known for his tireless work ethic. Nearly every
memory began with a story about Halladay's legendary workout program and
his early morning routine.
Halladay even outworked Chase Utley.
The fan favorites quickly became close friends after Halladay was traded
to the Philadelphia Phillies before the 2010 season. Utley recalled his
introduction to Halladay at the team's practice complex in Clearwater,
"My heart hurts writing this," Utley wrote on Instagram. "I can still
remember the first day we met. It was 5:45am on the first day of spring
training when I arrived. He was finishing his breakfast but his clothes
were soaking wet. I asked if it was raining when he got in. He laughed and
said 'No I just finished my workout.' I knew right then - he was the real
deal. Thank you Roy for allowing us to witness what it takes to be the
best. We will all miss you."
Former teammate Cole Hamels, currently a Texas Rangers ace, joined
Phillies chairman David Montgomery at Philadelphia's ballpark to remember
Halladay. Fans left pictures, candles and notes outside the stadium to
honor Halladay, who played four years there after spending his first 12
seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays.
"Behind everything he did, he had a purpose," Hamels said. "I think you
come to realize that you have very small, short moments in life to do
something great so you have to maximize it. You have to make the best of
it. And he did. He made us push to a level that sometimes you didn't think
you could actually reach. He made everybody better."
