The baseball world continues to mourn the loss of Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Roy Halladay as we remember some of his best memories in Toronto.

Days after hearing the news of Roy Halladay’s death, it is still hard to come to terms with the loss of the former Toronto Blue Jays ace. His impact on the team and the city will always be celebrated and there are many moments that defined his legacy.

The numbers speak for themselves winning two CY Young Awards in both the American and National leagues. He had five seasons with 200 or more strikeouts, eight all-star appearances and 67 complete games.

It was not an easy task trying to break down the best moments of Halladay’s career because he had so many.

Obviously the best moment of his career did not come as a member of the Blue Jays  but with the Philadelphia Phillies when he became one of 20 pitchers to throw a perfect game.

Then he did something that only one other pitcher has ever done in the postseason. Halladay joined Don Larsen as the only pitchers to throw a no-hitter in a playoff game (Larsen threw a perfect game in the 1956 World Series).

What makes this accomplishment surreal is that this was the first career postseason start of his career. It is performances like this that gave Halladay the reputation as an elite pitcher in the game.

While these are moments that Blue Jays fans won’t forget because Doc was doing it on the big stage.

Unfortunately those moments did not come in a Blue Jays uniform but there are moments fans will remember Halladay for and we have some of the best below.
