New York, NY, Tuesday, November 7, 2017 … Major League Baseball Players Association Executive Director Tony Clark today issued the following statement regarding the passing of Roy Halladay:


“Our hearts are broken. Roy Halladay was not just one of the greatest competitors, but was also among the best men in our generation of players. Our paths crossed many times during our careers and I can tell you he was among the toughest pitchers I ever faced. But while he never gave in on the mound, he was known in both leagues as an outstanding teammate, a guy who would go out of his way to help other players. Our prayers go out to his wife Brandy and their children Ryan and Braden.”
