Devastated by the tragic loss of Roy Halladay. Best, most consistent pitcher ever. Tremendous teammate. Loving father. Great person. Prayers
When people ask me if I could re-live any moment in baseball-1 that I always say would be to watch Doc pitch again! Today my heart goes out to Brandy and the boys. He was a great husband, father, friend and teammate. Such a special man! You will be forever missed!
I'm stunned to silence over the news of Roy Halladay. My thoughts and heart are with Brandy and the boys. Rest In Peace my friend.
We lost another member of the Phillies family way to soon! My prayers go out to Doc's wife and kids and his entire family! RIP Doc!
So incredibly saddened to hear about @RoyHalladay. Rest in peace brother. Gone way too soon.
Rest in Peace, Roy. It was an honor to say your name. Very hard to find the right words right now. https://t.co/msofEckjA8
RIP Doc. Watching him perform his craft for a couple of years will always be one of the thrills of my broadcast career. Beyond tragic.
No, I'm not okay. But this isn't remotely about me. I don't know what to say.
