We mentioned the Phillies interest in Roy Halladay in a potential instructing role a couple of weeks ago. Today, the team announced that Halladay will in fact be a guest instructor down in Clearwater this spring, joining a handful of other former Phils.
Halladay was known for his impressive work ethic almost as much as his face-breaking cutter during his time in Philadelphia. Surely the team would like some of that to rub off on many of their young players. There wasn’t a guy on the Phillies roster last season who was more respected than Doc.
I wonder if he’ll still show up before all the players?
From the Phillies:
The Phillies have invited five Alumni to serve as guest instructors. The group consists of Larry Andersen, pitcher on the 1983 and 1993 National League Championship teams and currently a radio broadcaster for the club; two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay; Dave Hollins, the Phillies special assignment scout and All-Star third baseman for the 1993 NL champs; Brad Lidge, the All-Star closer for the 2008 World Champions; and Gary Matthews, former All-Star and left fielder for the 1983 NL champs and former Phillies broadcaster.
