Take A Look Back At Roy Halladay’s Illustrious Career [SLIDESHOW]

Before his untimely death Tuesday, Roy Halladay was a force to be reckoned with on the baseball field.

Halladay won the Cy Young Award not once, but twice.  Everyone remembers the no-hitter he logged against the Reds during Game 1 of the 2010 NLDS. That is one moment Halladay fans will never forget.

Halladay definitely had a passion for flying and his new ICON A5 was pretty impressive. Things go wrong when people are flying all the time, and being an avid pilot, Halladay definitely knew the risks. I think flying was his next passion behind baseball.

The baseball world lost a true gem in Halladay’s passing. Remember number 34 by taking a look back at some of his career highlights.
