Roy Halladay Biography
A six time MLB All-Star, Roy Halladay was born May 14, 1977 and is the starting pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays. His nickname, coined by former Blue Jays announcer Tom Cheek, is a reference to Wild West gunslinger Doc Holliday. He was the Blue Jays' first draft selection in the 1995 Major League Baseball Draft, the 17th pick overall, and has played for the team since 1998.
Halladay continued his success in the 2003 season, posting a 227 record with a 3.25 ERA in 266.0 innings. He also recorded 204 strikeouts and only 32 walks, good for a remarkable 6.38 strikeouts per walk ratio. Halladay pitched the first extra-inning shutout in the major leagues since Jack Morris in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series, leading the Blue Jays to victory over the Tigers on September 6th. He pitched 10 innings and had not allowed a hit until Kevin Witt doubled with two outs in the top of the eighth. Halladay finished the season with the American League Cy Young Award, while being once again named an All-Star, and leading the Blue Jays to a surprising 86 victories.
Roy Halladay currently has a career win percentage of .673, good enough for 8th all-time, behind Lefty Grove.
In 2009 he was named #7 on the Sporting News' list of the 50 greatest current players in baseball. A panel of 100 baseball people, many of them members of the Baseball Hall of Fame and winners of major baseball awards, was polled to arrive at the list.
