Toronto getting a Blue Jays appreciation day

Don't put away your baseball apparel just yet because Mayor John Tory is making October 27 Blue Jays appreciation day in Toronto.

Yes, the Kansas City Royals knocked the Jays out of the playoffs on Friday night. But, we still have plenty to be happy about considering we just had our most successful season since 1993.

"We are going to encourage people to wear a bit of the blue and white to work or to school or wherever they are going tomorrow, and to join us on social media in sharing some of the memories of what this season meant to people in Toronto," said Tory.

So throw on a snapback, a jersey or your favourite Jays shirt tomorrow and celebrate the team that brought our city and country together.
