Default Roy Halladay dies in plane crash in Gulf of Mexico

Roy Halladay dies in plane crash in Gulf of Mexico

Police have confirmed that ex-Major League pitcher Roy Halladay, 40, died in a plane crash on Tuesday afternoon in the Gulf of Mexico.
Halladay spent parts of 16 seasons in the majors with the Blue Jays (12 years) and Phillies (four). He was 203-105 with a 3.38 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 2,117 strikeouts in 2,749 1/3 innings. The eight-time All-Star won the Cy Young in both leagues, taking it in 2003 for the Blue Jays and 2010 for the Phillies. He also threw a no-hitter in his first career postseason start in Game 1 of the 2010 NLDS vs. the Reds. He also threw the 20th perfect game in regular season history.
After having retired following the 2013 season, Halladay will first be on the ballot for the 2019 Hall of Fame class. We made the case that he should make it upon his retirement.

More importantly, however, was Halladay the human being. He was nominated for the Roberto Clemente Award several times thanks to his work with underprivileged children. He and his wife, Brandy, had two children of their own as well.

##### when this guy was in he was the best in my opinion. #####

Michael Felger Suspended By NBC Sports Boston For Roy Halladay Rant




Michael Felger could be heard on the 98.5 The Sports Hub airwaves Friday afternoon, but he won’t be seen on NBC Sports Boston until next week.
The network on Friday afternoon announced it has suspended the radio/TV personality after his comments Wednesday about former big league pitcher Roy Halladay who died in a plane crash Tuesday.
“As a result of his insensitive comments about Roy Halladay and Dale Earnhardt on Wednesday, Michael Felger will not appear on NBC Sports Boston effective immediately through Sunday,” a statement from NBC Sports Boston read. “While we don’t have editorial control of his radio show, which we simulcast, Felger’s comments are not representative of our network’s views or standards.”
As mentioned in the statement, Felger’s radio show is usually seen weekday afternoons on NBC Sports Boston, but that was bumped Friday afternoon for a previously televised Boston Celtics game. Felger also does New England Patriots coverage for the network, which apparently is the focal point of this suspension.
Felger did, however, appear on NBC Sports Boston on Thursday where he opened the simulcast of “Felger and Massarotti” with an apology.
