Roy Halladay Makes First Appearance At Citizens Bank Park Since Retiring

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) --- On Friday, former Phillie Roy Halladay will make his first appearance at Citizens Bank Park since retiring from baseball last year. Doc will throw out the first ceremonial pitch and be recognized prior to Friday's 7:05 p.m. game against the Mets.

The event is the first of four days of Phillies Toyota Alumni Weekend Festivities, August 8-11, taking place throughout the series against the Mets. Each day features opportunities to see former Phillies All-Stars and Wall of Famers. Fans are encouraged to arrive early and be on the lookout, as they never know who they will bump into around the ballpark.

All fans in attendance Friday will receive a Toyota Roy Halladay Bobble Figurine.

Tickets are available at Visit for features, vintage photos, news, notes, quotes and anecdotes involving former Phillies.
