Roy Halladay elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame
Halladay (or "Doc" as he was affectionately known) played for Toronto between 1998 and 2009 and was known for his ability to throw complete games.
He was an eight-time All-Star and one of only six pitchers in league history to win the Cy Young Award in both the National and American leagues.
He was 40 at the time of his death on November 17, 2017 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Last February, the Toronto Blue Jays officially retired Halladay's No. 32 jersey as a tribute to his contributions to the team.
He is now one of just two former players who spent most of their career with the Toronto Blue Jays in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Roberto Alomar was the other player.
A whopping 85.4 per cent of more than 400 voters decided that Halladay should be inducted this year.
He joins Edgar Martinez, Mariano Rivera and Mike Mussina as part of the Hall of Fame's 2019 class.
