Medicine Hat Blue Jays have a rich history here

By Letter to the Editor on May 16, 2018.

There was a time when plaques listing all the names of Medicine Hat Blue Jays graduates who made it to Major League Baseball hung on the walls of Athletic Park. Those plaques no longer exist, as if the Blue Jays were never even here.

I think the biggest Medicine Hat Blue Jays moment came when the Toronto Blue Jays took on a National Baseball Institute team in an exhibition game at Athletic Park in 1994. This happened because Toronto had a farm team here. Now there are no Canadian teams in the Pioneer League.
