From the club’s inception in the late ’70s to winning the division for the first time in the ’80s, Joe Carter’s epic home run, the two World Series titles in the early ’90s, the reign of Roy Halladay, and everything in between, the Blue Jays have continued to build a storied history as one of baseball’s most exciting teams. In Tales from the Toronto Blue Jays Dugout, Jim Prime, who has written several books on the AL East rival Boston Red Sox, captures all of the best moments in Blue Jays history, from the most thrilling to the most humorous, and so much more. Stories of players and coaches from both on and off the field can be found here, including tales of All-Stars Dave Stieb and Carlos Delgado; Hall of Famers Dave Winfield, Rickey Henderson, and Roberto Alomar; and many more memorable Blue Jays, past and present.

It’s all here, in the latest addition to the Tales From series, the perfect gift for any fan of the only current Major League Baseball team playing in Canada!

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?
