Based on Halladay's Twitter flying was clearly a passion. Sad news. pic.twitter.com/p024tZePzu

Roy Halladay was a joy to watch, even when it aggravated us who cheered for the other team. So awful. Prayers to his kids and wife.

Halladay always seemed to have the Yankees' number and was always a class act. RIP, Doc.
