Roy Halladay dies in plane crash

Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay throws during the first

Roy Halladay, a two-time Cy Young Award victor who pitched a flawless game and a playoff no-hitter, died Tuesday when his private plane crashed into the Gulf of Mexico.

The Pasco County Sheriff's Office told the station that Halladay's ICON A5 plane crashed around 1 p.m local time, about 10 miles west of St. Petersburg, Florida.

"Real life is better than my dreams", he wrote.

"OK, I get it", she said, seeing the view from the clouds. I'm getting bruises on my arms from constantly pinching myself! ICON on October 12 announced it had delivered its 2018 model of the A5 to Halladay and described him as a "regular" renter. Thx to all at Icon! Tampa Bay's CBS affiliate reported that the plane was owned by Halladay.

Halladay retired in 2013 and was an avid pilot. "Not only is it the safest and easiest aircraft Ive ever flown, it is hands-down the most fun".

I love the Players & Parents of our Florida Burn! Words don't do justice to what the A5 allows us to experience.

Deputies would not confirm what kind of aircraft it was, only calling it a "small plane".

Investigators say they have not found a flight plan so they don't know how many people were on the plane.

"We are numb over the very tragic news about Roy Halladay's untimely death", the Phillies said in a statement posted to Twitter.

Halladay is one of only six pitchers to win the Cy Young in the American and National leagues.

Roy Halladay has sadly passed away at the age of 40.

On May 29, 2010, Halladay pitched the 20th flawless game in baseball history, beating the then-Florida Marlins 1-0.

Halladay was considereda Hall of Fame contender.
