(WSYR-TV) — It’s been 18 years since the late Roy Halladay last stepped on the mound in Syracuse.
On Sunday, in front of over 100,000 family, friends, and teammates the man they called “Doc” was enshrined in baseball immortality. It was just two years ago that Halladay passed away in a plane crash.
His wife, Brandy Halladay, gave the acceptance speech in his honor.
Halladay pitched 16 seasons in the majors and won two Cy-Young Awards. He’s one of only 20 players to ever throw a perfect game, and one of only two pitchers to toss a no-hitter in the postseason.
