Let RetroSparX spark your memory of the Toronto Blue Jays’ first Opening Day with Let’s Play Ball! When the Blue Jays stepped onto the diamond at Exhibition Place for the first time in 1977, and began swinging their bats over a field freshly dusted with snow, there was no question that major league baseball was in Canada. Together with the Montreal Expos, the Jays carried the aspirations of all Canadians to bring the World Series north of the border. Read about this beloved team, and its long journey to baseball dominance.
