With his trade to Philadelphia before the 2010 season, Roy is now known as one of the best pitchers in the National League. His ability to keep his pitches down and work both sides of the plate has proved to be the perfect recipe for his success. After two winning seasons with the Blue Jays and leading the American League in innings pitched in 2003, "Doc" was awarded the American League Cy Young Award. Halladay had one of his finest campaigns in 2008, leading the AL in complete games, while sports a 20-11 record with a 2.78 ERA. In short, Roy Halladay is one of the best and most accomplished pitchers in the Major League Baseball.
Not only is Roy a great pitcher, but he is an avid fisherman and model builder as well. He and his wife Brandy launched their foundation called Doc's Box through which they invite kids from local hospitals to bring their families and enjoy a baseball game. From a private skybox Roy spends time with each child before the game begins. With his trade to Philadelphia, Doc is excited to continue his on and off field successes and help spread the values of hard work and determination that got him to where he is today.
