Retro Blue Jays – Party in the streets…for the very first time

Posted by CatchTheTaste.

This coming season, the Blue Jays will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the 1985 team.

Yes, it will actually be 30 years since the Jays captured their first-ever AL East title and made their first-ever playoff appearance in club history.

In honour of this occasion, here’s the opening to CTV’s national newscast from October 5, 1985 – the day the Jays clinched the division. Not surprisingly, they’re the lead story.

As you’ll see (or have seen), there is no footage from the actual game. It’s just fans celebrating on downtown streets; celebrating a major baseball victory for the very first time.

Best part of the clip: That stellar Blue Jays cap umbrella. Jays Shop needs to get some of those on the shelves.
