Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from History in Anecdotes I really enjoyed this book. It tells the Blue Jays story in anecdote form and the captures the spirit and traditions of the team. Some very funny stories too. Great for all ages.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs an editor/proof reader Kind of wish I hadn't spent my money on this book. I wonder if anyone proof read it before it was published. In addition to several typo's there are a ton of factual errors in the book. Some small ones like listing Pat Borders as a left handed batter, to bigger ones like incorrect facts about teams players went to. For example it says that after 92 Dave Winfield left the Jays to sign with the Yankees. Later in the book though it mentions how he went to the Twins. It says that J.P. Arencibia signed with the Marlins after the Jays cut him loose, but he actually went to Texas. At one point in the book they spell Jerry Howarth (who the spoke to for many of their facts) with a "G". There are many other errors throughout the whole book. Possibly the worst oversight is on the last page of the book during the acknowledgments, where they say that the Jays won the World Series in 91, and 92. How did so many errors slip through the cracks?
