Former Blue Jays Pitcher Roy Halladay Dies In Plane Crash

It's a sad day in the baseball world.

Roy Halladay, 40, died in a plane crash today in the Gulf of Mexico.

Not only was he one of greatest pitchers to ever play, but he was also a licensed pilot.

He was with the Jays from 1998-2009. With them he won 148 games and also received the 2003 Cy Young Award as the American League’s best pitcher. Just this past June he was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame.

The Toronto Blue Jays Official Twitter account released this statement:

No survivors were found. No word on whether there were other passengers or where the plane was going.

He leaves behind his wife and two sons.
