Roy Halladay will be remembered in a Celebration of Life ceremony on Tuesday afternoon, following the tragic death of the former major league baseball pitcher in a plane crash last week.
The service will be held at Spectrum Field in Clearwater, Fla. It will be open to the public, and a sizable contingent from the Blue Jays is expected to attend.
Halladay was killed when the sport plane he was flying crashed in the Gulf of Mexico last Tuesday. He was 40.
The Denver native played in Toronto from 1998-2009, posting a 148-76 record with a 3.43 earned-run average and winning the American League’s Cy Young award as top pitcher in 2003.
He spent the next four seasons with Philadelphia, pitching a perfect game in 2010 en route to winning the National League’s Cy Young award.
