Braden Halladay took the mound for Baseball Canada’s U-18 team and Blue Jays’ fans gave him a warmer welcome than most prospects. This is because he is the son of Jays’ legend Roy Halladay, who tragically passed away in a plane crash in November.
Braden is a 17-year-old high school student. After the ovation he flashed a bit of his father by tossing a perfect 8th inning, but it wasn’t just the scorecard that looked like one of his old man’s. A side-by-side of the two pitchers shows a remarkably similar delivery.
Even if you didn’t know his name, Jays’ fans could almost pick him out of a line based on that familiar delivery. Shades of Doc.
