#Fact
1Agreed to a 4-year, $60 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. [December 2009]
2Won the National League Cy Young Award in 2010, joining Gaylord Perry (1972 - AL, 1978 - NL), Pedro Martinez (1997 - NL, 1999, 2000 - AL), Randy Johnson (1995 - AL, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 - NL), and Roger Clemens (1986, 1987, 1991, 1997, 1998, 2001 - AL, 2004 - NL) as the only men to win the award in both leagues.
3On October 6, 2010, he became the first pitcher since Don Larsen to throw a no-hitter in the post-season, and the first since Nolan Ryan to throw two no-hitters in a season. He is also the only man other than Larsen to retire 21 or more consecutive batters in a post season game.
4Pitched a perfect game against the Florida Marlins on May 29, 2010, two weeks after Dallas Braden pitched a perfect game for the Oakland A's. It was the first time two perfect games were thrown in the same month, and that multiple perfect games were thrown in the same season.
5In a game many Blue Jay fans still remember, on July 8 2005, Halladay suffered a broken leg when he was hit with a line drive off the bat of Texas Rangers left fielder Kevin Mench, thus ending his season and a chance to start the All-Star game. Matt Clement of the Red Sox took his spot and Mark Buehrle of the White Sox started the game.
6Since the 2005 season, is no longer considered a strikeout pitcher, he has adjusted his approach to that of a ground ball pitcher with a good strikeout-to-walk ratio. This approach helps to keep his pitch count down (he regularly features among the league leaders in this category) so as to avoid fatigue later in the season. However, this hasn't seemed to work as he failed to complete both the 2005 & 2006 seasons due to injury.
7Halladay pitched the first extra-inning shutout in the major leagues since Jack Morris in Game 7 of the 1991 World Series, leading the Jays over the Tigers on September 6, 2003. He pitched 10 innings and hadn't allowed a hit until Kevin Witt doubled with two outs in the top of the 8th. He did it again and again against the Detroit Tigers pitching another 10 innings on April 14, 2007 in a 2-1 Blue Jays win. Detroit reliever Fernando Rodney took the loss in both games.
8When Halladay comes out to pitch, his song is "Bad Case of Loving You (Doctor, Doctor)" by Robert Palmer.
94-time MLB All-Star: 2002, 2003, 2005 (was supposed to start but was sidelined with a season-ending injury), and 2006.
10In the beginning of his career in Toronto, Halladay often moved between the starting rotation and the bullpen. During the 2000 season, Halladay sported a 10.64 ERA in 19 games, 13 of which he started. At the beginning of the 2001 season, Halladay was optioned to class A Dunedin to rebuild his delivery. Halladay was a power pitcher, his fastball can sometimes be clocked at 95mph but it had little movement and his pitches were up in the strike zone which ultimately led him to the unsuccessful campaign in 2000. Following his demotion, the Blue Jays pitching coaches changed Halladay's delivery adjusting the arm angle in which he throws the ball. Instead of throwing over the top, he went to more of a 3 quarters delivery. He went from a being a pitcher who relied on his fastball to one who delivers everything down, regardless of the type of pitch he throws. The adjustments were proved to be successful. After a month and a half, he was promoted to class AA Tennessee, and then, a month later, to class AAA Syracuse. Halladay was recalled to the Blue Jays on July 1, and was soon inserted into the starting rotation. He posted a 5-3 record with a 3.19 ERA for the Jays in 16 starts in 2001.
11He pitches some of his best games against the Detroit Tigers, Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees, Tampa Bay Devil Rays and Minnesota Twins.
12Against the Detroit Tigers on September 27, 1998, Halladay came within one out of pitching only the second no-hitter ever pitched on the final day of a regular season, the only such feat being Mike Witt's perfect game in 1984. The bid was broken up by a Bobby Higginson solo home run. It was Halladay's second start in the majors, and his first career win. The game was also a near perfect game if not for an error by the Blue Jays backup second baseman, Felipe Crespo, as Halladay struck out eight and walked none.
13Is to stay with the Jays until 2010.
