Throwing strikes, challenging the hitters with quality pitches and getting ahead in the count sets the pitcher up for success at any level of play. Former Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay explains how taking an aggressive approach to pitching increases your chances of being successful and allows you to pitch deep into the game. The goal of any pitcher should be to get the hitter out in the fewest amount of pitches possible, giving you the best chance at going deep into the ball game. Stay away from trying to strike out every hitter, and let your defense help you win the game.

About The

Roy Halladay

Harry Leroy "Roy" Halladay, nicknamed "Doc", is a former professional baseball player who pitched in Major League Baseball for the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies between 1998 and 2013. His nickname, coined by Toronto Blue Jays announcer Tom Cheek, is a reference to Wild West gunslinger "Doc" Holliday. He was the Blue Jays' first draft selection in the 1995 Major League Baseball Draft, the 17th pick overall, and played for the team from 1998 through 2009, after which he was traded to Philadelphia. Halladay is known for his ability to pitch deep into games effectively and, at the time of his retirement, was the current active major league leader in complete games with 67, including 20 shutouts. On May 29, 2010, Halladay pitched the 20th perfect game in MLB history, beating the Florida Marlins by a score of 1–0. On October 6, 2010, in his first post-season start, Halladay threw the second no-hitter in MLB postseason history (Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series being the first) against the Cincinnati Reds in Game 1 of the 2010 NLDS. It was his second no-hitter of the year (following the May 29 perfect game), making Halladay the fifth pitcher in major league history (and the first since Nolan Ryan in 1973) to throw multiple no-hitters in the same season. During the 2012 season, he became the 67th pitcher to record 2,000 strikeouts. Halladay is also one of only five pitchers in MLB history to win the Cy Young Award in both the American and National Leagues.
