During his 12 seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays, Roy Halladay cemented himself as one of the greatest players in franchise history. Nicknamed “Doc” by Blue Jays play-by-play announcer Tom Cheek, he was not only amazing on the field, but well-respected off it, too.
He also shined as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies, pitching a perfect game and a playoff no-hitter in 2010.
Retiring in 2013, he finished his career as an eight-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young Award winner, going 203-105 with a 3.38 ERA. He tragically died in a plane crash in 2017 at the age of 40. He was posthumously elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2019.
Sportsnet invites you to relive some of Halladay’s best moments through Blue Jays Rewind and MLB Rewind during our “Best of Doc” week.
