Dean James AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

We are saddened to report that the former MLB pitching star and two-time Cy Young Award winner, Roy Halladay is reportedly dead after his personal plane crashed Tuesday afternoon into the Gulf of Mexico off the west coast of Florida.  He was just 40 years old.

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office in Florida said Halladay’s plane crashed into shallow water sometime around noon near Holiday, which is about 10 miles west of St. Petersburg.

Mike Oz at Yahoo Sports reports that initial reports said one person died in the crash but the victim wasn’t unidentified until the sheriff’s office confirmed Tuesday afternoon what many had feared — it was Halladay.

After he retired from baseball in 2013, Halladay got his pilot’s license. His father was a corporate pilot, so Halladay had grown up around planes and had flying in his blood. Last month, he announced on Twitter that he’d bought the Icon A5 plane that was involved in the accident. Since buying the plane, he’d posted videos of himself in it on his Twitter account:

“I have dreamed about owning a A5 since I retired! Real life is better then my dreams!! Thx Kirk & everyone

“Can’t begin to explain all the breathtaking views I have seen thru the open windows of demo’s & now my very own Icon A5! Thx to all at Icon!”

“I’m really not big on posting pic’s of my stuff and I’ll never be on Cribs… but this A5 is so outrageous I’d feel guilty not sharing pics!”

“What do clouds feel like? I didn’t know either until I got my new Icon A5! I’m getting bruises on my arms from constantly pinching myself!”

Halladay pitched for 16 years in the major leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays and the Philadelphia Phillies before retiring following the 2013 season. He won the Cy Young Award twice, once in 2003 with the Blue Jays and again in 2010 with the Phillies. Only five other pitchers have won the award in both the American and National Leagues, and three of those – Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and Gaylord Perry – are in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Halladay will be eligible for the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2019 and stands a good chance at being elected.

Phillies statement on the sudden & tragic passing of Roy Halladay:

Other teams sent their condolences:

“We are deeply saddened by the tragic news of the passing of Roy Halladay. We extend our thoughts and condolences to his family & loved ones.”

“The Eagles are saddened to learn of the passing of Phillies icon Roy Halladay. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.”

God Bless.

TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
