A celebration of Roy Halladay's life is being conducted before today's game at the Rogers Centre. His family received a standing ovation as they took the field. Said Yankees manager Aaron Boone (who played against Halladay in the minors and bigs) before the game: "He was just one of those players that commanded so much respect around the game for just who he was, the way he went about things. It wasn't a lot of fun facing him. With Halladay, it's almost like it's a 54-foot mound ... it's almost like the mound's closer the way he goes about it."
