Jump To Roy Halladay's Stats
Baseball tends to given Roy Halladay a comfortable life. With his net worth of $121,380,000 the right-hander knows how to put the ball in the right place at the right time. He has managed to be one of the lucky few to negotiate a guaranteed association with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Halladay joined the Phillies in a contract extension in 2010 that provided him with $60 million dollars over the next three seasons. Harry Leroy ‘Roy’ Halladay aka The Doc, immediately joined the starting rotation.
Halladay marked the 20th perfect game in 2010 against the Florida Marlins on May 29, 2010. Halladay finished the 2010 regular season with a 21–10 record. His low 2.44 ERA helped set a career high with 219 strikeouts while issuing just 30 walks. He led the National League in wins, innings pitched, and complete games (9), including 4 shutouts and two no hitters.
In 2011, the Philadelphia Sports Congress rewarded the 34-year-old Denver, Colorado native for his 2010 impressive play with the John Wanamakar Athletic award. That same year, he was also the recipient of The Best Major League Baseball Player ESPY award. The accolades didn’t stop there, for he racked up a few more, including his second consecutive Sports Person of The Year title for 2011.
While he was with his initial professional team the Toronto Blue Jays, this married father of two gave back through the Jays Care Foundation, donating the contractual $100,000 every year. He also invited sick kids to see the games at Rogers Center in his “Doc Box,” and even remodeled it to become ‘kid friendly.’
He can afford it, what with his $20 million a year contract.
