Halladay targets PED users at Ted Williams Hall event

ST. PETERSBURG — Roy Halladay was thrilled along with the other honorees at Saturday's Ted Williams Hitters Hall of Fame induction, more so since he was a pitcher.

And he showed he still had his fastball, explaining why he spoke out on Twitter last month against Hall of Fame candidates Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds over their use of performance-enhancing drugs.

"There were a lot of opinions and a lot of debate, but I didn't hear the views of anybody who competed against any of them and had so much to lose," he said before the Dinner with Chris Archer & Friends event.

"I want to be proud that I played the game the right way. I don't want any of that to ever come into play."

Halladay and Billy Wagner were honored as pitchers, Royals pitching coach Dave Eiland for his leadership. Dante Bichette, Alex Rodriguez and Alan Trammell were inducted.
