On November 7th, 2017, tragedy struck the sports world as Toronto Blue Jays legend Roy Halladay died in a plane crash.


Baseball players honoured Halladay by sharing stories that exemplified how incredible a person he was and how the Jays legend inspired them.

With the season right around the corner, on Monday the Blue Jays revealed how they would be honouring Halladay this season and it's in a way many fans hoped it would be.
Halladay's No. 32 will join Roberto Alomar's No. 12 as the only numbers the Jays have retired in the history of their franchise and there's no better time to retire his number than on opening day. The commemorative patch the players will wear this season is a wonderful touch, too, and fans are very happy that Halladay's number will go where it rightfully belongs.
