100 Things Blue Jays Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die

Title: 100 Things Blue Jays Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die
Author: Steve Clarke
Publisher: Triumph Books
I was saving this book for when my baseball hibernation break was over; around Spring Training when I usually get excited about another season, however I couldn’t resist and finished reading it this winter.  I can’t really blame myself for finishing it because most chapters or rather stories are no more than a few paragraphs in length making them perfect for short reads when you’re bored.  While a majority of the stories are pretty common, it’s always nice to read about them again (can never get bored of those World Series Champions days) and to know that a younger generation of Jr. Jays can learn about them as well.
The other stories that were unknown to me were pretty interesting and insightful, especially the ones from the late 70’s early 80’s.  Regardless of whether or not you are familiar with most of the stories, I recommend that you read this book with a computer/ipad at your side so that you are able to search for videos or pictures of the stories it referrers to.  Being able to watch videos or pictures of those memorable moments just adds so much more substance to each story.  Informative books like this help strengthen the proud history of Toronto Blue Jays baseball and I recommend it to the rest of you who are awakening from your baseball slumber.
