“Roy Halladay”
by Tim Devine

Today’s Disney Picture of the Day is off the beaten track a bit and really isn’t even the best photo but it does have a special meaning along with a Disney context.  This photo is from March 9, 2010, from the Phillies/Braves Spring Training game at the ESPN Wide World of Sports.  Anyone who knows me know that I am a DIE-HARD Phillies Phan, always have been, always will be.  I got to enjoy a Phillies/Braves game in Disney World that past two years along with my grandfather (Bill), my father (Ron), and my first-born son (Billy).  Four generations of Phillies Phans, cheering for our favorite team; that’s what we were celebrating,

This picture is posted today in honor of Roy Halladay pitching a no-hitter against the Cincinnatti Reds in the opening game of the 2010 Major League Baseball Playoffs.  For years, Roy Halladay was a star pitcher on a bad Toronto Blue Jays team; he came to the Phillies in an off-seaon trade prior to the 2010 season beginning.  He marked his inaugural Phillies campaing by going 21-10 and pitching a perfect game in May against the Florida Marlins.  His no-hitter today was the first postseason no-hitter in baseball in over 50 years, and also marked the first time a pitcher has thrown a perfect game and no-hitter in the same season.  Halladay is just an incredible pitcher and the Phillies are blessed to have him in red pinstripes.
