A tragic loss of life happened in Florida this afternoon as former Philadelphia Phillies and Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Roy "Doc" Halladay perished in a single engine plane crash in the Gulf Of Mexico in the western part of Florida. Halladay, 40, pitched 16 seasons in the Major Leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies before retiring from pitching in the Major Leagues in 2013 so he could spend time with his relatives. Halladay pitched a perfect game during the 2010 Major League Baseball season against the Florida Marlins and he threw a no hitter during the playoffs as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies against the Cincinnati Reds. Halladay was the only person aboard an ICON A5 small airplane that crashed near the city of St. Petersburg Florida. May his soul find eternal peace at last.
