Blue Jays legend Roy Halladay is dead after crashing his personal plane in
the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday afternoon. He was 40. The eight-time all-star
and two-time Cy Young Award winner was alone as he piloted his ICON A5, a
two-person, single-engine light sport aircraft, according to the Pasco
Country Sheriff’s Office in Florida. No mayday calls were made to Tampa Air
Traffic Control. The crash occurred about 10 miles west of St. Petersburg; a
nearby resident called 911 shortly after noon. Florida Fish and Wildlife,
U.S. Coast Guard, Pasco Fire Department and Pasco Sheriff’s Office all
immediately responded to the scene. The National Transportation Safety Board
took over the investigation as of Tuesday evening. In a statement, the
Toronto Blue Jays said it was impossible to express what Halladay meant to
the franchise, the city and its fans, while sending thoughts and prayers to
their former hurler’s friends and family. “The Toronto Blue Jays
organization is overcome by grief with the tragic loss of one the franchise’s
greatest and most respected players, but even better human being,” it read.
The right-hander was drafted 17th overall by the Blue Jays in 1995, won his
first Cy Young in 2003 and remained with the franchise until he was traded
to the Philadelphia Phillies in December 2009. Among the greatest players in
franchise history, he remains second all-time for Blue Jays wins,
strikeouts, strikeouts per nine innings and shutouts; and third all-time in
starts, ERA, innings pitched and completed games.

No one pays any attention to baseball from Canada.
