​One of the most dominant starters of the 2000s, former ​Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies hurler Roy Halladay was elected to the ​Baseball Hall of Fame on Tuesday night.


​Sadly, Halladay never lived to revel in this incredible honor, as he passed away in November of 2017 in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico. 


His widow Brandy put out a statement thanking the BBWAA and the Hall of Fame for immortalizing her late husband. 

​​Over 16 MLB seasons in Toronto and Philadelphia, Halladay won 203 games and posted a 3.38 ERA. He is one of only six pitchers to win the Cy Young in both the AL and NL, winning the AL award in 2003 and the NL one in 2010. As a member of the Phillies, Doc threw the second no-hitter in postseason history in a win in October of 2010 against the Cincinnati Reds.


His son also took to Twitter to honor his father. 

​​Though Halladay is no longer with us, the BBWAA did the right thing by electing Doc on the first ballot. He deserved it, no doubt.
