About Toronto Blue Jays

A Canadian professional baseball team based out of Toronto, Ontario, the Toronto Blue Jays played their first regular season game in 1977 against the Chicago White Sox and came out with one of the few wins of their inaugural season. Cheap tickets were easy to score during that historic snowy game. Originally owned by Labatt Brewing Company, the team was named through a contest that included more than 4,000 name suggestions. The Blue Jays donned the traditional blue - the color of Canada's other two professional sports teams - as well as adding red and white. Belonging to the East division of the American League in Major League Baseball, the Blue Jays are currently the only team in the league to be located outside of the U.S.

During the first few seasons of league play, the Blue Jays' home field was at the Exhibition Stadium. In 1989, the team moved to the SkyDome following its grand opening. At the time, the indoor facility was highly regarded thanks to its impressive, fully retractable roof. In 2004, four years after Rogers Communications media company took over team ownership, the arena was renamed the Rogers Centre. Home to more than 200 events each year, the stadium is a popular place and scoring cheap Blue Jays tickets is a win in itself.

Before the Montreal Expos relocated, as the only other Canadian MLB team they were a natural rival of the Blue Jays. The annual Pearson Cup, a yearly mid-season face-off between the two rivals, was an old tradition that lasted more than a decade. It would give one of the only two Canadian teams bragging rights for that year. The other heated competition faced during the team's history came from the Detroit Tigers, due to their proximity, although that rivalry has died down in recent years.

Following the team's inaugural season, assistant general manager Pat Gillick took over as general manager until 1994. Leading the team to win five division tittles (1985, 1989, 1991, 1992 and 1993), Gillick also led them to their first World Series championship appearances - and wins - in 1992 and 1993. Four former Blue Jays players, one former manager and one former general manager have been elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Inductees are Roberto Alomar, Pat Gillick, Rickey Henderson, Paul Molitor, Dave Winfield and Phil Niekro.

The Toronto Blue Jays won the World Series championship consecutively in 1992 and 1993. Winning the American League Most Valuable Player Award for the 2015 season was third baseman Josh Donaldson. Emerging as one of the best players in the league, Donaldson has credited much of his success to his teammates. In 2015, he batted a .297 average, hit 41 home runs and had an MLB-high of 123 RBIs. Leading the team in home runs for the 2015 regular season was Chris Davis. Just a few hits behind Davis were players Nolan Arenado, Nelson Cruz and Bryce Harper.

Although the Toronto Blue Jays lost pitcher David Price, they have an exciting new replacement in the form of promising 24-year-old Marcus Stroman. The upcoming season looks to be a favorable one for this Canadian team and with just over a month until the 2016 season opener, now is the time to get your Blue Jays tickets!
