Linda DerbyshireI was 40 yrs old. My father took me to Exhibition Stadium for my first Jays game. I was visiting from Whitehorse, Yukon. It was September, raining lightly, but I didn't care. We had seats on the third base line. I was thrilled. George Bell was within touching and Tom Henke was warming up and Ernie Whitt was catching....right close.!!! What a great memory. Happy Birthday, George.

Spencer Henry WilliamsHappy Birthday, George! You are one of the greats. I still think you have the best Blue Jay quote ever. “The fans can kiss my purple butt” For the record, I agreed you would be wasted as a DH

Miguel TopaI saw on YouTube the 1991 All-Star game player intros, Bell had just joined the Cubs, and was selected as a bench player. First player introduced and Skydome went nuts when he was announced, but the announcer didn't let him have the ovation...guy continued the intros! (He gave people more time to cheer Dennis Martinez than Bell!)

Sean DeMarco'85 Blue Jays .... A wind aided HR helps sink the team. '87 Blue Jays ..... Huge injuries mount and the team blows it in the last 7 games or so of the season. That '87 season really hurts. George you should have been on a WS winner but it just wasn't meant to be I guess. Thanks though for playing baseball the right way which was the clean way. Also thanks for being just who you were which was a really fired up guy who did things his own way. Happy Birthday George.

Gwen McLaren HeerNot pertaining to this thread but do I detect a wee bit of Yankee favouritism on the part of the TV commentators, or is it because I am not a Yankee fan. Lol Can't be a die hard Jays fan and ever cheer for the Yankees. ABTY. (Anybody But The Yankees)

Jonah NavWinfield bunted. I know Maldonado had the walk-off hit, but that bunt set up Candy’s at-bat. Not to rag on players today, but I can’t remember one of them bunting - especially with one with as much cachet and pedigree as Winfield - to help his team win. The little things.

Phil McGuireImho, Joe Carter is the greatest Blue Jay of all time, in addition to being a fantastic ambassador for his team and baseball generally. He was the last player to touch the ball in both the 92 and 93 Jays' World Series victories; in 92, playing first base and recording the final out; and his Word Series winning & all time best walk off homer in 93. WS MVP Pat Borders amazing play, including letting a wild pitch/passed ball go into the dugout to save an important run, Ed Sprague's decisive homer against Atlanta, and Roberto Alomar's homer off Oakland's Eckersley (and tomahawk chop homer against Atlanta) are right up there too. With all respect to Bautista, who was a great Blue Jay, his homer against Texas was fantastic, but not as amazing as the WS plays described above. nationalpost.com/sports/baseball/mlb/ranking-the-five-biggest-home-runs-in-toronto-blue-jays-play...

Marie Metcalfe LegaultThis is bittersweet for me...I was in a hospital room listening to it on the radio. My sister was semi comatose with terminal cancer. When the announcer was screaming the Toronto Blue Jays have won the world series, my sister said "they won". Those were the last words she ever uttered again. She passed away 9 days later. I loved that our beloved boys in blue had taken the world series but saddened that my sister couldn't enjoy the win with me ...So Bittersweet :'( <3

Todd McPhersonEd Sprague's homerun. The equivalent of Joey Bats' homer in 2015. Turned the series in our favour, at least psychologically. My university roommate had given up on the game and gone to bed, only to hear me shout "It's gone!" Which had him sprinting back into the living room to see the ball land beyond the left field fence. All on a low-def bubble t.v.

Keith Doan25 years ago today...game 4 of the 1992 world series. My pops and I went. Jimmy key v Tom glavine. Toronto v Atlanta. Blue jays won. Went on to win the first world series by a non usa based team. Our only world series game together after 20 years of dad taking me to games, I took him to that special day. It was 3 months after he lost his incredible big brother who had come to toronto with dad in may of 1992 to see the jays with me. Pops asked me what I had paid and it was like $100 each. But I told him I was offered $1000 each and he was like 'why are we here? We could have watched it on TV. A new TV. ' Man he was practical. I told him then that this 3 hours with my dad is absolutely more important to me than money. A special memory. I love you dad. Thanks for a love of baseball. It was a dream come true. Thanks for everything.

Joanne DavidsonI see so much bullying on social media. This site might congratulate someone on the team and then the dregs of society get on and make it about how much they dislike that person. Kim N Randy Modde have just done this. I don't know where they get their info. Pedophiles and transgender are two very different things. Bullying is something that people do often without giving their words or actions serious thought. I have always stood up to bullying and will continue to.

Lorraine ChayIt is not just gays or transgenders that get bullied. All you need is to be shorter, fatter, walk or dress differently, have an accent, be smarter or just have the 'wrong' coloured skin and you can get attacked. It has always been that way and I see nothing changing. Pay all the lip service you like but until people in authority actually DO something and there are consequences to bullies nothing will change. Teachers are usually afraid of them as are school principals. College professors and deans do nothing. The bullies get ignored as do the bullied. In the work place, managers and bosses do even less. I have experienced it through all those places and phases. These anti-bullying campaigns are a total waste of time and energy. They accomplish nothing. It will not stop.

Petros SamonisKeep politics and sex out of sports Blue Jays, if you want to be a non-divisive and family environment. Stand against bullying. That's great! Stand against bullying generically. No one should bully, people have differences of opinions and we shouldn't be bullying each other, but respectful that we are all human beings, and God's creation. But standing up against bullying doesn't mean throwing support behind a political group, or one type of lifestyle, or highlighting sex (especially among young people who look up to you). Stay neutral, you're being divisive. Are you aware that Q stands for questioning? So are you throwing support behind young people questioning their sexual orientation?!? And giving a link to political groups? Don't talk about sex at all man. You're a baseball team. Stay out of it. You just lost a few supporters because of this divisive post.

Jesse WheelerI remember this vividly. Though we came into the Series very strong, this crack of the bat was when I knew we would win it all. My Ultimate Warrior wrestling buddy took the brunt of my anxiety. I was also there for the 1993 home opener when they received the first ring. Sprague went 4 for 5 with 4 RBIs, including a 3-run HR in a 13-10 win over Cleveland. Thanks for the great memory, Ed, you were a great Blue Jay!

Jason ShumayI remember that 92 world champion team like it was yesterday. Trading tony Fernandez and fred mcgriff for roberta alomar and joe Carter in 90 set the groundwork. The pitching staff was completed when david cone was acquired at the deadline in 92 to round out an already potent starting rotation that included jimmy key and jaun guzman and david wells. Yes that was the jays most well rounded team in franchise history with respect to the 93 team which didnt have the depth the 92 bullpen did! Awesome memories those years i miss them now!

Christopher PrestonThis was the turning point early in that World series. If Atlanta had hung on, they'd have a 2-0 series lead. Sprague's clutch home run propelled the Jays to win four out of five for that first ever championship.

Adam PrudhommeRandom Ed Sprague fact. Circa 1996 I went to the Dome and my dad bought me a stuffed baseball with a face on it and Jays hat. I was stuck on what to name my new friend. Sprague hit a grand slam against Seattle that game. To this day, that toys name is Ed.

Rick WeaverI'll never forget the silence that followed. It was almost like you could hear a pin drop. Atlanta fans knew their Braves were about to be had. And it probably was the only time I can remember western Pa. fans rooting for the Blue Jays. We did not want Atlanta winning it all after it took out the Pirates in a second successive NLCS. On that occasion, the AL could have been the Yankees for all it would have mattered to us.

Johnny Roland Kurz BurmeisterTime to stop living in the past. Literally all I see is posts about how great we were 25 years ago....you think we are going to forget the last 25 years of mediocrity and horrid teams? So glad the Jose Bautista era is over, he was poison most of the time and a poor reflection of how to play the game respectfully.
