Braden Halladay’s commitment comes in the wake of his father’s tragic death. Roy Halladay was killed
in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico on Nov. 7. He was 40.
Roy Halladay was a two-time Cy Young Award winner and eight-time All-Star in his 16-year Major League career with the Toronto
Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies. He might be best remembered for throwing a no-hitter for the Phillies against the Cincinnati
Reds in Game 1 of the 2010 National League Divisional Series.
Braden Halladay is the older of Roy’s two sons. The former Major League star volunteered as a coach at Calvary Christian
High School, where Braden is currently a junior.
