Brandy Halladay, wife of the late Roy Halladay, took the stage in Cooperstown yesterday afternoon and delivered a riveting speech that perfectly encapsulated the many emotions surrounding her late husband’s posthumous induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
You don’t need any thoughts or takeaways, you just simply need to both see and hear it:

Other reactions to Halladay’s induction, after the jump.
Congrats to one of the best to ever do it. The epitome of hard work, dedication, and preparation. I’m so glad I had the opportunity to have Roy as a teammate. A true inspiration for us all. He made the game better in so many ways. Miss you Roy! pic.twitter.com/Gc8fftuJii

It takes more than talent to be in baseballs most decorated club. Roy’s dedication and determination are just 2 of his many Hall of Fame attributes. Thank you for being an inspiration to not only myself but to all that had the pleasure of sharing the field with you. I miss you bud.
And this touching tribute, featuring Chris Carpenter:
“Doc wanted the biggest stage all the time, and wasn’t afraid of it.”
