The Big 50: Toronto Blue Jays

The Men and Moments that Made the Toronto Blue Jays

By Shi Davidi / Foreword by Dan Shulman

 

Contact: Bill Ames, Triumph Books, 312.676.4256, b.ames@triumphbooks.com

 

The Toronto Blue Jays are set to embark on their 40th season of professional baseball. Since they joined the league they’ve experienced the full spectrum of success. From the typical lows of expansion franchises, growing up in the shadow of storied division rivals in the Yankees and Red Sox, to the enviable highs of back to back World Series championships in ’92 and ’93, the Blue Jays have contributed a great deal to the history of the game.

 

In The Big 50: Toronto Blue Jays (Triumph Books, May 2016), veteran sportswriter Shi Davidi explores the defining elements of the Blue Jays’ identity. Beginning with the franchise’s first game played on a snow-shoveled field through 2015’s American League Championship Series, this book helps fans relive the moments that shape what it means to be a supporter of the Blue Jays. Highlights include:

 

  • A review of General Manager Pat Gillick’s greatest moves, including the acquisitions of Tom Henke, Roberto Alomar and Joe Carter
  • Jose Bautista’s epic bat-flip following his post-season home run in 2015’s ALDS, and its place in the pantheon of Blue Jays blasts
  • The trials of Dave Stieb on the way to his lone career no-hitter, and how the accolade cruelly eluded him time and again
  • How the franchise upgraded from Exhibition Stadium (the Mistake by the Lake) to the Sky Dome, now known as Rogers Centre
  • A look back at the triple play that wasn’t in the 1992 World Series

 

The Big 50: Toronto Blue Jays honors its subject with a detailed and entertaining history that fans of all stripes will find value in. Both diehards and the new generation of Blue Jays supporters need to make room on the shelf for this great new reference.

Shi Davidi is a baseball columnist and TV analyst with Sportsnet in Toronto, who has covered the Blue Jays since 2002. He is the co-author, with John Lott, of Great Expectations: The Lost Toronto Blue Jays Season.
