Today marks the Birthday of, not only an all time great baseball player, but an all time great person, who was taken from us too soon.

Roy Halladay was, in short, one of my favorite baseball players — he was a living, breathing envoy of this game, and what makes it so great. Doc was honorable, Doc was hard-working, and Doc was, above all else, a true competitor.

Let us take a trip down memory lane, and reflect upon the true mastery that is Doc’s Hall of Fame worthy career,

The Acquisition:

The Perfect Game:

The No-Hitter of ‘Doctober’:

“No speech — let’s win two more.”

The Memory:

Wishing you the happiest of Birthdays, Doc. You’ve left a lasting mark on the city of Philadelphia, the city of Toronto, and the game of Baseball itself.

We love you.
