Halladay, who went 55-29 with a 3.25 ERA, 622 strikeouts and 137 walks over a four seasons with the Phillies, died Nov. 7 when the plane he was piloting crashed into the Gulf of Mexico.

Joining Halladay in the Wall of Fame will be Pat Gillick, who served as general manager from November 2005 to November 2008 and oversaw the Phils’ second world championship in the ’08 season. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2011 and returned to the Phils in 2014 to serve as team president, then became a senior advisor when Andy MacPhail was hired to steer baseball operations. He remains a senior advisor today.

The ceremony takes place during the Phillies’ annual alumni weekend, which takes place this year during a series against the Miami Marlins.
