His wife felt otherwise and the HOF Committee agreed.

Eh. The whole "what team" thing is manufactured nonsense regardless. The choice that gets made doesn't change anything about what he did and given the circumstances I'm perfectly happy with respecting his family's wishes.

Oh sure, I don't really care.  For me he goes in as a Jay based on his performance with the team.  What hat goes on his plaque matters very little.   He probably still goes into the HOF on the first ballot even if he didn't pass but without him being there to give his speech it really doesn't matter beyond that as his plaque will highlight both his time with the Jays and his performance in the playoffs with the Phillies.

Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be on Sunday July 21st.

Ten years ago this week, Roy Halladay pitched a perfect game. Then, he bought 67 luxury watches — each one personalized — to thank those around him. And it wasn’t just teammates. That game lives on through the people who received a watch: https://t.co/b3svdQ0StW— Matt Gelb (@MattGelb) May 26, 2020
