The Toronto Maple Leafs Shared a Wonderful Pre-Game Tribute to Roy Halladay

Interesting

In case you missed the terrible news, I’m deeply saddened to inform you that former big league ace Roy Halladay recently passed away in a plane crash over the Gulf of Mexico.

Losing anyone is tough, but Halladay, a 2-time Cy Young award winner and 8-time All-Star was just 40 years old and, by all accounts, a wonderful person. He’ll be missed.

Although Halladay spent 16 long years in the Major Leagues, 12 of those seasons (the first twelve to be exact), were spent with the Toronto Blue Jays, where he earned a 148-76 record, made six of his eight All-Star teams and earned his first Cy Young honors.

Naturally, the people of Toronto remember “Doc” fondly and recently honored his memory before a Maple Leaves game:

Nicely done.
