PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - The late Roy Halladay will be posthumously inducted into the Philadelphia Phillies Wall of Fame during the upcoming 2018 season.
Halladay, who died tragically in a plane crash last November, will be inducted into the Wall of Fame ahead of the team's August 4 game at Citizens Bank Park.
The Halladay family will be joined by a number of his former Phillies teammates in honoring the beloved 'Doc.'
Halladay will be the 39th person to be inductee of the Phillies Wall of Fame, and just the fourth to be inducted without a fan vote. He will join Charlie Manuel, Mike Schmidt, and Steve Carlton as the members of the Wall of Fame who did not go to a fan vote.
"Braden, Ryan and I are so honored to have Roy remembered in this way," said Roy's wife Brandy Halladay. "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."
In addition to the Wall of Fame ceremony, a flag bearing his No. 34 will be flown at Citizens Bank Park for the 2018 season as a tribute to Halladay's contributions to the club.
On the same night, Pat Gillick will become the first executive inductee into the team's Wall of fame.
