That’s what the Toronto Blue Jays are doing, posting incredible videos and pictures of Roy Halladay’s remarkable career to Twitter all day today.

It all comes on the same day as Halladay’s celebration of life ceremony, which will take place at Spectrum Field in Clearwater, Florida. The Blue Jays legend was tragically killed in a plane crash last week.

The ceremony, which is open to the public, will be televised on Sportsnet and streamed online via the Blue Jays’ Facebook page beginning at 4 pm ET / 1 pm PT.

Halladay was undoubtedly one of the best pitchers of his generation, and one of the all-time greatest Blue Jays. A first round draft pick by the team in 1995, he entered Major League Baseball in style by striking out the first batter he ever faced in 1998.

In his second start, he took a no-hitter into the ninth inning.

His last home game for the Jays was a complete game shutout of the Seattle Mariners.

The Blue Jays remembered these moments, and more, in an incredible tribute on social media on Tuesday. Take a look:
