The City of Toronto has opened Roy Halladay Field, the city’s first fully-accessible baseball diamond in recognition of his commitment to Toronto youth.
The facility is described as a safe space for athletes of all abilities to learn and develop important life skills through the game of baseball.
The Jays late hall of fame pitcher was an eight-time All-Star.
He led the league in complete games seven times, the most of any pitcher whose career began after 1945. He also led the league in strikeout-to-walk ratio five times and innings pitched four times.
Roy Halladay Field is located in Highview Park in Scarborough.
