Saturday, the 17-year-old high school junior was perfect against his late-father’s old team, the Toronto Blue Jays.
The younger Halladay, a member of the Canadian Junior National Team, entered the game in the eighth to a standing ovation and, to the delight of everyone…shut them down.
Braden Halladay was, by far, not the only player on the field with big league connections. Suiting up for the Blue Jays…the sons of former Major Leaguers Craig Biggio, Roger Clemens, Vladimir Guerrero, Dante Bichette and Dwight Smith. And if that isn’t enough, Mark Grudzielanek’s nephew served as Toronto’s designated hitter.
