I laughed so hard at some of the anecdotes that my family had to check I wasn't choking. I have been a Jays fan since 1984 and it was great to relive so many memories. The names were so familiar. I also learned a lot about the teams prior to 1984.

I would have to say my favourite segment was about Carlos Delgado, and the words of wisdom from Mel Queen: "Do things right, even when nobody is watching." It's a great mantra to live by and something I made sure to read to my son.

I typically love books like this that dig into the minutiae of some of my favorite players of my youth as well as guys I've never heard of that have interesting stories. The interesting anecdotes in this book were far outnumbered by distracting editing errors, however.

Dave Stewart volunteered on Thanksgiving between games of the '93 ALCS? I highly doubt that, baseball never runs though late November. Dave Winfield left Toronto for New York? No, he didn't. It was Minnesota. Willie Mays' great ca

The back cover says "Relive the greatest moments in Blue Jays history". Well, sort of. I watched the Blue Jays win the World Series in 1992 so I had high hopes for this book. Yes, there are great moments from their history, as well as anecdotes about many of the players throughout the history of the team. What made this a less interesting book is that it's not necessarily about the team but about the players. I don't care to read about all the times a player has been traded and to what teams.

If you like baseball and watch a lot of games, read this book. I enjoyed reading about players that I have watched for years. The book is badly in need of a good editor, but the facts and stories that the author chose to highlight for each person (not all those featured in the book are players) are interesting and worth a read.

Too many typos, incorrect spellings and factual errors throughout this book for me to recommend it. It needs a thorough edit and a second edition.
