Alumni Weekend - Roy Halladay and Pat Gillick Wall of Fame Ceremony

Hi everybody,

It is Alumni Weekend down at the ballpark and former Phillies starting pitcher Roy Halladay and former Phillies General Manager Pat Gillick were added to the Phillies Wall of Fame in a ceremony last night (August 4th) before the ballgame.

Roy Halladay (who sadly passed away last November) played for the Phillies from 2010-2013.  During his four season with the Phils, Doc would pitch a perfect game against the Miami Marlins on May 29, 2010 as well as a post-season no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds during Game 1 of the 2010 National League Divisional Series.

Halladay's wife Brandy and his two sons accepted the Wall of Fame induction in his honor and Brandy gave a beautiful speech honoring Doc.  Carlos Ruiz then unveiled Halladay's Wall of Fame Plaque.

Pat Gillick served as the Phillies General Manager from 2006-2008 and later as Phillies President from 2014-2015.  It was during Gillick's time as GM that the Phillies won the World Series in 2008.

I just want to congratulate both Roy Halladay and Pat Gillick for earning their places on the Phillies Wall of Fame.  I just wish that Doc was still here so he could have been a part of it.

Talk to you soon,
Little Chase
