Roy Halladay to be inducted to the Wall of Fame

Philadelphia Phillies, an American baseball team, recently announced that one of their main players, Roy Halladay would be inducted to the team’s Wall of Fame that is strategically located at Citizens Bank Park. Roy passed away at the age of 40 after his small private plane crashed into the Gulf of Mexico in November, 2017. The tragic accident happened right before the Phillies scheduled match with the Miami Marlins.

Roy will be remembered by thousands of baseball fans from not only Philadelphia but across the globe for his exceptional prowess and ability to launch attacks quickly. According to a recent press statement from the team’s executive management, the Phillies will fly a special No.34 flag at the Citizens Bank Park throughout this season as a sign of respect to this young, energetic, and vibrant baseball player.

The management’s decision to induct Roy to the Wall of Fame without a fan vote makes the induction process even more meaningful to not only the fans but also the Roy’s family and friends. He will be the 39th inductee to the Phillies Wall of Fame, the highest achievement any Phillies baseball player can achieve. It is also important to note that now, only three other Phillies players, Steve Carlton, Charlie Manuel, and Mike Schmidt have had their names inscribed on the Wall of Fame without the fans being asked to vote.

The Phillies also revealed that they will be honouring the tremendous effort that various executives have made to the best baseball team in the country by inducting them alongside Halladay. The first executive to receive this honor will be Pat Gillick, former president and GM. Pat is currently one of the team’s senior advisers and is celebrated for his role in the 2008 Baseball World Series in which the Phillies won.
