Did you need another reason to love Roy Halladay?
Because one trip to Brazil just turned the Phillies player into a hero. On a recent trip to the Amazon with some fellow MLB players and pro fisherman Skeet Reece, Halladay and crew stumbled upon a young boy who’d been bitten by an anaconda. The snake then wrapped itself around the boy’s boat and tore off the motor.
In a totally casual paragraph buried in the middle of a blog post, Reece details how he and Halladay helped the boy gather his stuff, right his boat and then tow him to safety.
Sounds like Doc has no trouble keeping busy in the off-season.
