It’s always gut wrenching to hear of the death of a player who left such a mark on the game. Roy Halladay was known as an impressively hard worker, and his effort showed in his play. He was an eight-time All-Star and a two-time Cy Young winner. He threw a perfect game against the Marlins on May 29, 2010, and during the 2010 NLDS, Halladay threw a second no-hitter against the Reds. It made him only the fifth pitcher in major league history to throw multiple no-hitters in a single season.
Rest in peace, Roy Halladay.
The Christmas holiday is less than two weeks away, and in the spirit of the season, here’s an amusing tune about a kid wishing for a Roy Halladay-autographed baseball glove from Santa. Ironically, approximately two weeks after this song was released, Roy Halladay found himself traded from the Blue Jays to the Phillies.
