Halladay crash: Even a 'forgiving' plane can kill a pilot

Growing up, he was my favourite to watch.

Rocky Marciano (Aug. 31, 1969) - The former heavyweight champion and two others were killed in Newton, Iowa after their Cessna hit a tree two miles short of the runway. He wiped sweat from his forearms and signed the kid's baseball.

By now, you know the story.

July 9, 2002 - Halladay makes the first of eight all-star teams.

September 28, 2000 - A miserable season comes to an end, as Halladay allows seven runs in a game against the Orioles.

Easygoing and humble were the words Case used.

So what is Roy Halladay's legacy?

In my final year of middle school, the Phillies again made the World Series. The plane, which Halladay had owned for less than a month, crashed in shallow water and his body was identified near the vessel.

While the company took orders and deposits that ranged from $2,000 to $5,000, delivering the product proved troublesome. He served as a role model for both his physical conditioning and his mental strength; he gladly aided teammates with both components. Roy was like a brother to me and we remained close after his playing days.

The ICON A5 owned by Roy Halladay was designed for amphibious take-offs and landings.

Jesse Litsch was one of Halladay's former rotation-mates from 2007 to 2009.

Suffice to say, he didn't have any problems winning Phillies fans over.

Doc. I can remember first time catching your bullpen thinking it was one of the coolest things i had ever done. As Halladay got to the top step of the dugout and was about to disappear up the tunnel to the clubhouse, a young boy broke away from the tour group and shouted, "Roy!" I had a sixth-period study hall that was essentially a free-for-all.

Whether you knew him or not - I only had two fairly brief encounters with the man, and never had the pleasure of covering a game he pitched in, unfortunately - Halladay was an important figure if you were a Blue Jays fan, or a fan of baseball at all.

"You see that picture there, that's me when I was 12 years old, standing with Roy Halladay on the field for a national anthem". "I was very against it".

Devastation struck the MLB in a rude way on Tuesday as longtime Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay was killed in a plane crash. After the Phillies won the division in 2011, Ruiz said, "Gotta get Doc a ring". I mean, you couldn't beat him to the ballpark. "We're really, really going to miss him".

"It's so surreal right now, to think this happened", said Matheu Nelson. Berringer was a NFL prospect and died just two days before the draft. The team expressed their condolences to his wife and two children. Instead, it turned out to be a day where even the most unfriendly or sports unaware teacher was happy to talk about Halladay.

Halladay continued his involvement with baseball as a guest instructor for the Blue Jays and Phillies while pursuing his hobby of recreational flying. But there's nothing quite like the first time.

Baseball's last true workhorse left us way too soon.
