The Lakewood BlueClaws announced on Saturday that 2-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay will be making a rehab start for the team on Tuesday night.
The start comes at the start of a three game series against the Hagerstown Suns as the BlueClaws return to FirstEnergy Park for the first time since August 11. The former ace of the Phillies and before that the Toronto Blue Jays is working his way back from shoulder surgery back in May.
Halladay’s appearance with the BlueClaws comes a little more than a year since slugger Ryan Howard made his triumphant return to Lakewood as part of a rehab assignment.
First pitch for Tuesday is scheduled for 7:05 and it is also Jake Diekman “Made the Phillies” Bobblehead night. The first 2000 fans will receive bobbleheads of the sidearm throwing former BlueClaw. It is also a Senior Tuesday where the team’s older fans eat for free as well as Faith and Family Night and Farm Night.
