The Toronto Blue Jays will honor the late Roy Halladay by retiring his uniform on Opening Day, March 29.They will also wear a commemorative No. 32 patch on their uniforms for the 2018 season.

 

In November, former pitcher Roy Halladay lost his life when his aircraft crashed into the Gulf of Mexico. He was 40. Halladay will be honored by one of his former clubs, the Toronto Blue Jays, when they retire his uniform number 32.

 


Halladay spent 12 of his 16 season in Toronto, where collected 148 of his 203 career wins. He pitched to a 3.43 ERA north of the boarder, registering 1,495 strikeouts in 2,046.2 innings as a Blue Jay. He also captured one of his two Cy Young awards in Toronto.

After being traded to the Phillies, Halladay tallied another Cy Young award, tossed a perfect game on May 29, 2010 against the Marlins, and the second no hitter in postseason history against the Reds on October 6, 2010. He also won 55 games in his four years in Philadelphia.

Halladay will be eligible for the Baseball Hall of Fame for the first time on the 2019 ballot.
