Halladay in Pinstripes
Roy Halladay is on the cover of the latest Sporting News magazine.
A couple excerpts from the interview:
On the label of being the best pitcher never to pitch in the playoffs: “It’s one of those things you want to get over. It’s kind of a hidden compliment, I guess. But I think the longer you play, the more important that part of the game is. When you’re younger, it doesn’t bother you as much because you’re in the big leagues and trying to have your own success. But that changes.”
On his desire to experience the postseason for the first time: “It’s the one driving force. I feel like I’ve been fortunate to accomplish different things that I didn’t necessarily set out to accomplish but was able to do it anyway. And I think through all of that I realized how important winning is to me. It’s not a lot of fun playing in September knowing you’re leaving to go home October 1. That is definitely very hard.”
