Halladay to Donate Jersey Worn In Wednesday’s NLDS No-Hitter to Hall of Fame
Phillies’ Star Pitcher Made History in Game 1 of NLDS vs. Reds
COOPERSTOWN, NY – Roy Halladay has worn the title of 20-game winner, All-Star and Cy Young Award winner.
Now, the jersey Halladay wore during his historic no-hitter in his post-season debut on Wednesday is headed to Cooperstown.
Halladay became the second pitcher to record a no-hitter in the post-season when he blanked the Cincinnati Reds in Game One of the National League Division Series with the Phillies. Halladay threw just 104 pitches in his masterpiece, allowing only one baserunner – a fifth-inning walk to Jay Bruce. It was the first postseason appearance of Halladay's 13-year big league career.
The Phillies will also donate a game-used ball to the Hall of Fame.
Halladay's mark in Cooperstown was established earlier this year when he donated his game-worn cap from his May 29 perfect game against the Marlins. With Wednesday's no-hitter, Halladay became just the fifth pitcher to throw two no-hitters in one big league season. He also joined Don Larsen, who pitched a perfect game for the Yankees against the Dodgers in the 1956 World Series, as the only pitchers with postseason no-hitters.
Halladay's jersey will go on display later this fall at the Hall of Fame.
