The City of Clearwater unveiled a monument honoring the life of Roy Halladay, who was tragically killed in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico nearly two years ago.
The monument was revealed during a ceremony at Jack Russell Stadium around 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
Halladay was a Major League Baseball player who pitched for the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies between 1998 and 2013.
He had 203 victories and won the two Cy Young awards.
While playing for the Phillies, Halladay spent time in Clearwater during spring training and the offseason.
He left behind a wife, Brandy, and two children, Braden and Ryan.
His widow is expected to speak at the ceremony on Tuesday.
