Rest in Peace, Roy Halladay
The two-time Cy Young Award winner pitched a perfect game and a playoff no-hitter for the Phillies. He died when his private plane crashed into the Gulf of Mexico. He was only 40 years old and leaves behind a wife, Brandy, and two sons, Ryan and Braden.

After hearing about his passing, so many people felt like they were punched in the gut. It is a sad day for baseball fans, for sure, and certainly Halladay’s impact went beyond the ballpark.

On this post, however, we’ll focus on a few of his accomplishments on the field, especially with the Phils, because during his time in Philly, he was often the most dominant player out there.
