La Semana - - FRONT PAGE / PORTADA -


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. He was 40 years old.

Pasco County Sher­iff Chris Nocco said dur­ing a news con­fer­ence that Hal­la­day's ICON A5, a small sin­gleengine air­craft, went down around noon Tues­day off the coast of Florida.

The sher­iff's of­fice marine unit re­sponded and found Hal­la­day's body in shal­low water near some man­groves. No sur­vivors were found. Po­lice said they couldn't con­firm if there were ad­di­tional pas­sen­gers on the plane or say where it was headed.

Hal­la­day was an eight-time All­Star and went 203-105 with a 3.38 ERA in his 16-year ca­reer with the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadel­phia Phillies. He threw a perfect game with the Phillies dur­ing the 2010 sea­son and a no-hit­ter that post­sea­son.
