Whether a die-hard booster from the days of John Mayberry or a new supporter of Jose Bautista, these are the 100 things every Toronto Blue Jay fan needs to know, and do, in their lifetime. Author Steve Clarke has collected every essential piece of Blue Jays knowledge and trivia, as well as must-do activities, and ranks them all, providing an entertaining and easy-to-follow checklist as readers progress on their way to fan superstardom. Most Blue Jays fans have taken in a game or two at Rogers Centre, have seen highlights of a young Dave Stieb, and remember where they were when Joe Carter hit his World Series-winning home run in 1993. But only real fans know who spent two decades as the team's BJ Birdy mascot, can name the opposing player who was once jailed for hitting a seagull with a thrown baseball at Exhibition Stadium, or how long it takes to open the Rogers Centre roof. 100 Things Blue Jays Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die stands as the ultimate resource for true fans of Canada's sole major league baseball team.

Written in a popular list format that's all the rage with bloggers and social media enthusiasts, Steve Clarke does an excellent job at highlighting the most famous - and infamous - moments in Blue Jays history. From Doug Ault and Dave Stieb to Joe Carter's World Series winning home run, I felt that I was reliving my treasured childhood as I turned the pages. Dave Winfield killing a seagull, "The Trade," and many more great stories from Exhibition Stadium and Skydome are in this book. And an added bonus are all the travel tips for fans to check out; from seeing the Steamwhistle Brewery to the many food trucks parked outside the Rogers Centre. A fantastic trip down memory lane for a kid who grew up in the late 80s/early 90s!!!
