Roy Halladay, a two-time Cy Young Award-winning pitcher who retired from baseball nearly four years ago, has died in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Florida. He was 40. Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said during a news conference that Halladay's ICON A5, a small single-engine aircraft, went down about noon Tuesday near Holiday, Florida. The sheriff's office marine unit responded to the downed plane and found Halladay's body. No survivors were found. They said they couldn't confirm if there were additional passengers on the plane or say where it was headed. Halladay recently received his pilot's license and tweeted photos last month of himself standing next to a new ICON A5 as part of the plane's marketing campaign.
