Roy Halladay remembered: Memorial today in Florida

A celebration of Halladay's life is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET at Spectrum Field in Clearwater, Fla., the spring training home of the Philadelphia Phillies, the only other Major League Baseball team he played for in a 15-year career that started in 1998. Roy Halladay remembered for his hard work and generosity " We remember him as an unbelievable father, loving husband and loyal friend, " his family said in a statement Thursday.

Halladay was killed when the sport plane he was flying crashed in the Gulf of Mexico last week. "He described each achievement as a team effort rather than an individual accomplishment, a true testament to his character and love for his teammates".

"La carrera de Kevin Spacey está acabada" — Bryan Cranston
Creo que su carrera hoy se ha terminado", declaró el protagonista de 'Breaking Bad' en una entrevista para BBC Newsbeat.

Halladay pitched for the Toronto Blue Jays from 1998 to 2009 before being traded to Philadelphia before the 2010 season. He threw a ideal game in 2010, and that fall pitched only the second postseason no-hitter in big league history. The ceremony included speeches from several of Halladay's former players and coaches, including Chase Utley and Cole Hamels. "Roy was selfless in every aspect of his life". Watch his reports tonight on Action News.
