2-Time Cy Young winner Roy Halladay killed

Roy Halladay, the 40 year-old retired starting pitcher of Philadelphia Phillies fame was killed while flying a small aircraft over the Gulf of Mexico today. Initial reports indicate Halladay was a novice pilot who only recently received his pilot’s license. ESPN reports that the Pasco County Sheriffs Office could not confirm Halladay was alone in the aircraft.

The two-time Cy Young award winner seems a likely candidate for Cooperstown when he becomes eligible next year. Halladay posted an impressive career 3.38 ERA with 2117 strikeout and was an 8 time All Star in his career with the Phillies and Blue Jays. He leaves behind his wife Brandy and two children.
