- Runner-up in the 1993 American League batting race, 37-year-old Paul Molitor became the oldest player in major league history to drive in 100 runs for the first time in his career. Signed as a free agent by the Toronto Blue Jays in 1993, “The Ignitor” became a crucial factor in the Jays’ second consecutive World Series Championship. Author Stuart Broomer chronicles Molitor’s upbringing in St. Paul, Minnesota. Broomer also looks at Molitor’s successful battle with cocaine addition in the early 1980s, his tireless community work, and his emergence as a team leader and a fan favourite in Toronto.
Stuart Broomer is a Toronto teacher and journalist.
