Last night the family and I went to a Toronto Blue Jays game at the Rogers Centre.
I remember watching the team at the old Exhibition Stadium where when the ball went high the wind off of Lake Ontario would take it in a completely different direction.
I was also lucky enough to be at the then Skydome in 1993 when Joe Carter knocked it out of the park for the second World Series win in a row.
I will never forget the celebration outside the stadium.
I also remember the lean years that followed and going to a game when there was 15,000 people in the stands.
That sounds like a lot but not when the stadium holds close to 50,000.
So it was great to see over 46,000 at a Thursday night game against a bottom feeder like California.
It’s amazing the difference a winning team can make.
It’s also amazing how prices go up.
I got my first Blue Jay baseball cap from the Woolworths store I worked at when I was 16 for a couple of bucks.
Oddly enough it was a geeking looking old school original blue and white flat cap like my son just bought for $40.
Everything is the same, except the price.
