About the Toronto Blue Jays

By | Apr 7, 2010

The city of Toronto in 1977 was awarded an American League franchise becoming the second team from Canada to have a Major league team.

They played their first game on April 7, 1977 defeating the Chicago White Sox. They went on to lose 107 of the next 161 games.

The Blue Jays had their best two years in 1992 and 1993. In those years they won 96 games in 1992 and 95 in 1993. In 1993 John Olerud, Paul Monitor and Roberto Alomar, finished the season 1-2-3 in batting.

They won the World Series by Joe Carter hitting a one-out three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth. This is the only time a team has won with a walk-off home run while trailing.

The Blue Jays have won 5 Divisional titles. They won back to back American League pennants in 1992-93 winning the World Series both times.

The Blue Jays have not retired any uniform numbers, other than the number 42, which is retired throughout baseball.
