The wife of former MLB star Roy Halladay gave an emotional speech during the late pitcher’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony this afternoon.
Brandy Halladay, the wife of the late pitcher, received a standing ovation from the crowd ahead of her speech today.
Roy Halladay, an eight-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young winner, died when his plane crashed into the Gulf of Mexico in November 2017.
Brandy Halladay thanked both of her husband’s organizations, the Blue Jays and the Phillies, during her speech.
MLB Network posted video of the speech:
"To both organizations, I can't thank you enough."

Roy Halladay goes into the National Baseball Hall of Fame as one of the most-dominant pitchers in recent memory.
The starting pitcher amassed more than 200 wins and 2,000 strikeouts. He is perhaps best remembered for his postseason no-hitter in 2010 against the Cincinnati Reds.
Roy Halladay enters the Hall of Fame after receiving more than 85 percent of the vote.
