Roy Halladay had amphetamine, morphine in system

The autopsy, released by the medical examiner in Pasco and Pinellas Counties, Florida on Friday, determined the all-star pitcher died accidentally from blunt force trauma with drowning as a contributing factor.

Former baseball great Roy Halladay had traces of morphine in his system when he crashed his small plane into the Gulf of Mexico according to an autopsy report.

Halladay was found in about six feet of water with a blood-alcohol content level of 0.01.

TMZ reported that a source close to the autopsy said,"The results are consistent with someone who uses Rx [prescription] medication". Morphine is commonly associated with heroin, but TMZ reports there's no indication Halladay was "using heroin or any other clandestine drug".

Halladay was killed in Holiday in November of past year. One thing of note ... the FDA lists on its website that more than 50 ng/ml of zolpidem "appears capable of impairing driving to a degree that increases the risk of a motor vehicle accident".

Halladay, known as "Doc", pitched four seasons with the Phillies before retiring after injuries cut short his 2013 season.

Halladay was the only person in the plane and died in the crash.

He started his career with the Toronto Blue Jays, winning the 2003 American League Cy Young Award, before he was traded to the Phillies ahead of the 2010 season.
