Jer­sey num­bers re­tired by the Toronto Blue Jays once they honor Roy Hal­la­day (No. 32) be­fore their opener against the New York Yan­kees on March 29, as an­nounced Mon­day.

Hal­la­day died at age 40 on Nov. 7 when the plane he was pi­lot­ing crashed into the Gulf of Mex­ico. Toronto will wear a No. 32 patch on its uni­forms this sea­son. Roberto Alo­mar’s No. 12 is the only other player whose num­ber was re­tired by the Blue Jays.

Hal­la­day spent 12 of his 16 big league sea­sons with Toronto and went 148-75 for the Blue Jays with six All-Star se­lec­tions. He won the 2003 AL Cy Young Award af­ter win­ning a club-record 22 games.
