LOOK: Former LSU pitcher Kevin Gausman to wear No. 34 in honor of Roy Halladay


The baseball world was stunned in November by the news of the sudden death of two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay, who was killed in a private plane crash.

To celebrate and honor Halladay, Gausman has decided to take the field wearing No. 34, Halladay’s old number, during the 2018 season.
