Eight-time All-Star pitcher Roy Halladay was killed Tuesday after a small aircraft he was flying crashed into the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida, authorities said.

Halladay spent 16 seasons in the MLB, playing for the Toronto Blue Jays and the Philadelphia Phillies. He threw 115 pitches to do it, striking out 11 batters on his way to the perfecto.

"I was very against it", Brandy said at the video's opening.

Halladay was a huge fan of the amphibious startup aircraft.

The circumstances of the tragic and sudden death of Blue Jays pitching legend Roy Halladay were born of passion, despite a public reputation of being stoic and unemotional. Making as much money as possible on the open market was not his priority. A Hall of Famer through and through in my book.

"He was the guy that you aspired to be", former Blue Jays teammate John McDonald said on Tuesday night. Over a twelve-year big league career in Toronto, he established himself as one of the finest starters in baseball.

There are no accounts of Halladay mistreating anyone, which in the age of social media is absolutely incredible. It's a performance that will be remembered for a long time. We have all volunteered in shelters in the past and have knowledge of working with and caring for dogs.

"I'm actually surprised that, you know, his number isn't up on the wall at Rogers Centre but I can definitely guarantee it, it's going to be up there this summer because he is, if not the best player to ever put on a Blue Jay uniform, he's definitely the best pitcher to do it". He and the Phillies lost 1-0 to St. Louis in the deciding Game 5 of the NL Division Series.

While Halladay was well-known among baseball fans, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco, who held a news conference Nov. 7 to deliver the sad news, said the 40-year-old professional baseball retiree was a personal friend of the department who had donated a K-9 and "coached our baseball teams". For somebody who was nearly out of the league in the early aughts, what a comeback.

Martinez saw Halladay's determination first hand, when he sent one of the Toronto Blue Jays' greatest pitchers to the minor leagues. His stats reflected his injury troubles as his ERA ballooned to a 6.82 ERA and he only managed a 4-5 record in 13 starts for the Phillies. But it is ultimately not the point. It only matters inasmuch as we create this illusion that it matters. Here lies one of the good ones.

That sounds grim-and maybe it is.

Halladay retired from baseball in 2013. "The family part of Doc that I got to see, I just loved".

The company had on Oct. 17 announced new guidelines for low-altitude flying, introduced with a message from company founder and CEO Kirk Hawkins.

The A5 can take off and land from the water or from the tarmac. You saw that singularity, and, at times, you wondered what kind of human lurked beneath it. Wins aren't everything for pitchers, and these days they aren't even most things when we analyze pitchers' seasons and careers.
