Roy Halladay

HOLIDAY, Fla. – Roy Halladay, a two-time Cy Young Award winner who pitched a perfect game and a playoff no-hitter, died Tuesday when his private plane crashed into the Gulf of Mexico.
He was 40.

Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said during a news conference that Halladay’s ICON A5 went down around noon off the coast of Florida. The sheriff’s office marine unit responded to the
downed plane and found Halladay’s body. No survivors were found. Police said they couldn’t confirm if there were additional passengers on the plane.

Halladay was an amateur pilot who often posted on social media about small planes.

“We are numb over the very tragic news about
Roy Halladay’s untimely death,” the Philadelphia Phillies said in a statement. “There are no words to describe the sadness that the entire Phillies family is feeling over the loss of one of the
most respected human beings to ever play the game.”

Halladay retired in 2013 after 12 seasons with the Toronto Blue Jays followed by four seasons with the Phillies.

Other baseball players to die in plane crashes included Pirates star Roberto Clemente in a relief mission from Puerto Rico traveling to earthquake victims in Nicaragua in 1972;
New York Yankees catcher Thurman Munson near his home in Canton, Ohio, in 1979; and Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle ane in New York City in 2006.
