Former Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay was killed today in a plane crash at age 40:

It was largely Halladay that really got me into my long-term stint as a baseball follower. I remember going to several games at the Rogers Centre, and Halladay was on the mound the only time the Jays were victorious in my presence. I completely did not expect that he would die this way, by crashing his private plane. So pitiful... the only good thing is that he's retired... otherwise, a legend has vanished and the major leagues will never be the same as back then... :(
