    Completely tragic. One of the best pitchers of my generation. Sad day for baseball.

    I'll never forget that no hit performance against the Reds in 2010. Just total domination. He did that to most teams throughout his career.

    So sad. His Twitter picture he's flying a plane. Very tragic.

    Terrible news. I understand the thrill of it but this is crotch rockets for millionaires, so much risk.

    I don't think he's eligible for another year or so, but yes. I also think they should go ahead and induct him this coming year.

    I loved the guy, especially when he pitched for my Phillies. And my first thought was yes, he’s first ballot. He was the best pitcher in baseball for a decade. But ultimately, his other 6 years weren’t great, and I think his win total, only 205, would give voters pause.

    Anyone have any links to witness accounts? The aircraft is a beginner style plane with an advanced AoA system. I wonder if it was mechanical or maybe pushing the limits.

    The Chris Carpenter / Roy Halladay 1-0 duel in game 5 of the 2011 NLDS is one of my favorite baseball games of all time.

    RIP to Doc Halladay. One of those players you specifically bought tickets to see pitch. He was a master.

    According to reports he flew into a box canyon by mistake and had no exit options.
