Roy Halladay, a two-time Cy Young Award-winning pitcher and eight-time All Star with a lifetime 203-105 record and 3.38 ERA during his 16 seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies, died yesterday when the single engine plane he was piloting crashed into the Gulf of Mexico. He was 40.

Halladay perhaps was most noted for having thrown a perfect game during the 2010 season for the Phillies, and then became only the second pitcher in history (Don Larsen was the first) to throw a no-hitter in the postseason, against the Cincinnati Reds.
