The legendary Roy Halladay has been confirmed for induction into the 2018 Phillies Toyota Wall of Fame on Saturday, August 4, at Citizens Bank Park, along with the very first executive induction, Pat Gillick. The ceremony will take place prior to the 7:05 game as part of Phillies Alumni Weekend. Additionally, a flag bearing Halladay’s No. 34 will be flown at Citizens Bank Park for the 2018 season as a tribute to his contributions to the club.
The late Halladay will be one of only four Phillies to be inducted into the Wall of Fame without a fan vote, joining Charlie Manuel, Mike Schmidt and Steve Carlton. Induction onto the Wall of Fame is one of the highest honors bestowed upon a Phillie.
Roy’s wife, Brandy, commented, "Braden, Ryan and I are so honored to have Roy remembered in this way…He will be in great company with other Phillies legends who are on the Wall of Fame. The decision made by the Phillies to induct Roy without a fan vote makes it even more meaningful. I look forward to fans and the community coming out to celebrate this special occasion with us."
