    Roy Halladay, a two-time Cy Young Award-winning pitcher who retired from baseball nearly four years ago, has died in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico off Florida. He was 40.

    The Pasco County Sheriff's Department confirmed that a small single-engine aircraft piloted by Halladay was reported down in the Gulf of Mexico earlier Tuesday afternoon.

    Why people continue to fly on those shitty puddle jumpers, especially when they're not being flown by a professional pilot, is beyond me

    I read this yesterday, David Booth who plays for the wings flew from Kelowna to Anaheim for a training camp tryout this summer

    the engine stalled and he thought he was done, he still flies today

    He just bought that plane. He didn't have it but 3 weeks. It was one of those proto types with the prop on top, 2 seater.

    RIP....awful news

    I have to agree with Galt.....maybe because I hate to fly and it doesn't intrigue me at all

    I get some folks love it and are amazed by it, but man.....

    Any news on what happened/how etc?

    If I had to guess, he ran into some complication, and being an inexperienced pilot didn't know how to handle it, lost control, crashes, and no chance of living through a crash in a little plane like that.

    This Boston radio host guy Michael Felger is pretty fucked up talking about Halladay like that after he died. What a dick.

    Yea I heard clip of the segment. Of course it was a mistake but to keep it going that way seemed a bit over the top.
