The Toronto Blue Jays announced Monday that they will retire Roy Halladay’s No. 32.
The Jays will officially retire the number before their home opener March 29 against the Yankees.
Halladay, who died Nov. 7 in a plane crash, is the greatest pitcher in Blue Jays history. Drafted by Toronto, he went 148-76 with a 3.43 ERA, 1,495 strikeouts and 455 walks over 12 seasons up north. He was traded to the Phillies before the 2010 season and spent parts of four seasons in Philadelphia. With the Phils (and wearing No. 34) he went 55-29 with a 3.25 ERA, 622 strikeouts and 137 walks.
It makes sense for the Blue Jays to retire Halladay’s number right away, but what about the Phillies? Halladay is obviously a Wall of Fame shoo-in (and for this year, most likely), but should the Phils retire his No. 34?
