Brandy Halladay took the podium at the Baseball Hall Of Fame induction ceremony on Sunday afternoon in Cooperstown to address the crowd, as her late husband Roy Halladay was getting inducted into the Hall. 

Roy Halladay, who died at the age of 40 in a tragic plane crash in November of 2017, was one of the most dominant pitchers of his generation and a beloved teammate who pitched for the Blue Jays and Phillies. 

Brandy gave a beautiful speech that you can watch below. 

"I think that Roy would want everyone to know that people are not perfect," Brandy said. "We are all imperfect and flawed in one way or another. We all struggle, but with hard work, humility and dedication, imperfect people can still have perfect moments. Roy was blessed in his life and in his career to have some perfect moments, but I believe that they were only possible because of the man he strived to be, the teammate that he was and the people that he was so blessed to be on the field with."
