Roy Halladay did today in a plane crash. He was the pilot and lone occupant. Roy was one of the Blue Jay greats with a tremendous story of struggle and renewal. His journey down to A ball from the major leagues, his re-making his delivery and his return to success was a great story and an inspiration to many young pitchers.

Roy was a great pitcher to watch. Apart from his superior ability he was a fierce competitor who never wanted to come out of a game. Roy had tremendous movement on his pitches and was always capable of throwing a complete game shut-out.

Roy was 40 years old. Rest in peace Roy.
