On December 9, 2013 — After signing a one-day contract with the Blue Jays, Roy Halladay announces his retirement, ending a stellar 16-year career with a 203-105 (.659) won-loss record. The 36 year-old right-hander, who decided not to seek free agency after two injury-filled seasons with the Phillies, asked Toronto for the ceremonial contract to show his appreciation for the organization where he spent his first 14 professional seasons, having been drafted out high school as the team’s #1 pick in 1995 amateur draft.
