- Remember Opening Day, 1977? Snow falling over Exhibition Stadium. Bill Singer on the mound. Doug Ault the power hitter. How about the beginnings of the Jays’ greatest outfield — Barfield, Moseby, and Bell? Cliff Johnson and Jorge Orta sharing the DH role. Mark Lemongello punching himself in the jaw. Dave Stieb’s sharp-breaking slider and fiery disposition. Kelly Gruber hitting for the cycle. Join us in re-living the first 25 years of the Blue Jays — a year-by-year look at the players, the seasons, the managers, the fans, the cellar-dwellers, and the World Series champs. Each season features great photos, a ten-best list, player profiles, and highlights from that year. 1977 to 2001— what a great ride it’s been.
