Major League Baseball star Roy Halladay remembered at celebration of life service in Clearwater

Major League Baseball star Roy Halladay remembered at celebration of life service in Clearwater”

At the Philadelphia Phillies spring training facility, not far from Halladay's Florida home, a handful of speakers confirmed that, yes, he really was as wonderful a guy as you thought he was. Most of the public eulogizing that's come pouring out over the last several days has centered on his incredible talent-and how can it not, when someone could pitch like that-but today offered some more intimate testimony, with Major League Baseball livestreaming the former pitcher's memorial service.

"We remember him as an awesome father, loving husband and loyal friend", his family said in a statement Thursday. "He described each achievement as a team effort rather than an individual accomplishment, a true testament to his character and love for his teammates".

Halladay was one of the best starters of his era, pitching 16 years for the Blue Jays and Phillies, twice winning the Cy Young Award and finishing in the top five in voting five other times. He posted a 203-105 record over his career before retiring after an injury-shortened 2013 season.

Career highlights included a ideal game for Philadelphia on May 29, 2010, against the Marlins and, in his first postseason start, no-hitter against the Reds in the 2010 division series playoff opener. "His love for the game had no boundaries as we often saw him instructing and encouraging the players on opposing teams".
