About


The Toronto Blue Jays are a Canadian professional baseball team based out of Toronto, Canada. They are a member club of the American League (AL) East Division which compete in Major League Baseball (MLB). They are the second MLB franchise to be based out of the United States, and currently, the only team based outside of the county after the Montreal Expos became the Washinton Nationals in 2005. The name "Blue Jays" originates from the bird of the same name, and blue is also the traditional color of Toronto's collegiate and professional sports teams including the Maple Leafs (ice hockey) and the Argonauts (Canadian football). They are also fondly referred to as “The Jays” and “The Buffalo Blue Jays.”

Toronto Blue Jays: History


An expansion franchise, the club was founded in Toronto in 1977. The team has won two AL pennants and two World Series titles (1992, 1993). They then became the first team based outside the United States to capture the World Series, defeating the Atlanta Braves in a memorable six-game series. The team was originally based at Exhibition Stadium, they began playing its home games at SkyDome upon its opening in 1989. The SkyDome was renamed to Rogers Centre after the Rogers Communication takeover of the franchise. The Blue Jays have had 9 players inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Cito Gaston, their two time World Series Championship coach was also inducted into the hall of fame.

The Toronto Blue Jays had their first winning season in 1983. Two years lates, they became division champions. From 1985 to 1993, the Blue Jays were an AL East powerhouse, winning five division championships in nine seasons, including three consecutive from 1991 to 1993. During that run, the team also became back-to-back World Series champions in 1992 and 1993. The Blue Jays became the first team outside the U.S. to appear in and win a World Series, and the fastest AL expansion team to do so, winning in its 16th year.
