Why Toronto mourns for Roy Halladay — EDITORIAL

Roy Halladay in 2014POSTMEDIA

Phillies fans loved Halladay's work ethic, loved the way he showed up early and talked humble.

'I've been dreaming about flying since I was a boy but was only able to become a pilot once I retired from baseball, ' Halladay recently told Seaplane Magazine.

"He was the anchor for years", Sellers said.

"I try to listen to everything he says, but he is my dad so sometimes I get annoyed".

And then there was the winning. He was as humble as he always was. Halladay jerseys sprung up throughout the stands at Citizens Bank Park. He throws the second no-hitter in post season history, beating the Cincinnati Reds 4-0.

Brandy's husband has also helped animals in need. “He was a person who was blessed to have a great arm and knew it and worked at it and perfected his craft. "We will all miss you".

Halladay won two Cy Young awards, one with the Blue Jays. He's an eight-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young winner. But he phoned back before that, realizing the time he wanted to take to settle his emotions wouldn't make it any easier to talk.

Major League Baseball said "we are saddened by the tragic news" of Halladay's death. "I think once it ends, it's a little bit surreal to know some of that stuff".

Perhaps mercifully, Halladay was traded to Philadelphia ahead of the 2010 season after the Phillies had claimed the World Series title two years previous. Halladay strikes out nine and allows six hits and a run in seven innings.

He is survived by his wife, Brandy, and his sons, Braden and Ryan. “The real Roy Halladay was the humble human off the field and the tiger when he went across the lines.”.

Halladay and his wife, Brandy. "I just remember he had that same determination as a parent, and I wanted to be like him". They called it "Doc's Box". "He had other things in his life besides baseball, he had a passion for flying and I admired that, and I guess, I was a bit jealous of it too". The county's fire department and U.S. Coast Guard also responded.

Halladay got the nickname 'Doc' from the Wild West character Doc Holliday. "That was not Roy".

"We were praying for the best, that it could be a search and rescue and we were just going to be taking him to the hospital", Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said at a news conference. Along the way he developed a pregame routine where, on the days of his starts, he would speak to no one, not even teammates. He stayed involved with the Phillies, as a guest instructor. The Jays later tasked a no-nonsense coach, Mel Queen, with berating the minors-sequestered Halladay in hopes of toughening him up.

The Toronto Blue Jays released their statement as well stating they are "overcome by grief" due to the loss of one their most significant and most respected members of the team.
