Denver Native Roy Halladay, An All-Star Pitcher, Dies In Plane Crash

"He was one in a million".

Halladay's plane, an ICON A5 single-engine aircraft, crashed in Pasco County, Fla. early afternoon Tuesday.

The sheriff's office says that the aircraft went down about noon Tuesday near Holiday, Florida.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office said the dad-of-two sent no mayday calls before he went down at around 1pm local time. No survivors were found. Halladay is said to have loved flying planes and bragged last March about logging 800 hours in the air as a pilot. On Halloween, he posted that flying it low over the water felt like piloting a fighter jet.

Dana White Discusses a Potential TJ Dillashaw vs. Demetrious Johnson Fight Next
I knew he was hurt, he was fast and getting out of the way. "I'm coming to the 125s and I'm stopping your record". Garbrandt moved in and nearly got the finish, but Dillashaw was saved by the bell and wobbled back to his stool.

Halladay was an 8-time MLB All-Star, spending most of his career with the Toronto Blue Jays, before joining the Philadelphia Phillies in 2010. On October 13, he tweeted that he had dreamed about owning an A5 since he retired and said, "Real life is better than my dreams!"

The Philadelphia Phillies, where Halladay played between 2010 and 2013, said they were "numb" over his "untimely death".

Halladay was a 6-foot-6 right-hander who was known for his durability and his command and became a two-time Cy Young Award victor and eight-time All-Star. The Pirates Roberto Clemente also died in a plane crash, as a passenger on a mission to deliver aid to Nicaraguan quake victims in 1972. Halladay announced his retirement from baseball at the Winter Meetings four years ago, following two injury-ravaged years with the Phillies. He won the 2010 National League Cy Young Award and pitched a ideal game while winning 21 games in his first season with the Phillies.
