Former Phillies star pitcher Roy Halladay died in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday. He was 40.

CBS Philly first reported on the plane crash. Tampa Bay's CBS affiliate reported that the plane was owned by Halladay. USA Today reported that the plane was registered to Halladay's father.

Halladay, a star with the Phillies from 2010-2013, recently tweeted photos of himself flying.

Halladay pitched in the majors for 16 seasons, making eight All-Star teams during his time with the Toronto Blue Jays and Phillies. The righty was a two-time (2003, 2010) Cy Young winner.

In four seasons with the Phillies, Halladay pitched to a 3.25 ERA and finished top-2 in the Cy Young voting twice.

On May 29, 2010, Halladay pitched the 20th perfect game in baseball history, beating the then-Florida Marlins 1-0.

Halladay is the father of two children with his wife, Brandy.
