Roy Halladay was one of the greatest pitchers I ever got to see. For almost a decade he was the absolute best pitcher in baseball.
Doc Halladay was also one of my idols. First for his tireless work ethic and demeanor. Second for his absolute skill on the field. Third for what an amazing overall human being he was.
Many people have written about Roy Halladay this past week. I wanted to share my favourite, which is from Ian Hunter of Blue Jay Hunter. Ian writes more from a fan’s perspective, which is exactly how I experienced Halladay’s tenure.
RIP Roy Halladay
