1989 On the same day, the Blue Jays pick Lee Mazzilli off waivers from the Mets, Toronto trades reliever Jeff Musselman and pitching prospect Mike Brady for Mookie Wilson, made expendable when New York obtained Juan Samuel from Philadelphia. After a slow start, Toronto's new outfielder will play a vital role in the team's return to the postseason for the first time since 1985, batting .298 in 54 games.
2004 With homers in his first two at-bats off Jorge Sosa, Carlos Delgado hits his fifth home run in five consecutive at-bats off the Devil Rays' right-hander. The Blue Jay slugger's streak started last season with a round-tripper on September 10th, being extended to three when the Tampa Bay hurler gave up the first two dingers in his four-homer day on September 25th.
2011 Although the Blue Jays already display his uniform digits on the Level of Excellence, the team officially retires Roberto Alomar's No. 12 jersey, making the infielder the first player so honored in this manner in the 35-year history of the franchise. The newly inducted member of the Hall of Fame played five seasons with Toronto, including the back-to-back 1992-93 World Series championship teams.
