Since their debut in 1977, the Toronto Blue Jays have had many great players pass through their organization. Hall of Famers like Rickey Henderson, Paul Molitor, Phil Niekro and Dave Winfield have all worn the blue bird on their cap at one point in their careers, yet none are enshrined as Blue Jays.
Soon, for the first time ever, a player will be inducted into Cooperstown as a Toronto Blue Jay. That player is Roberto Alomar.
The ceremony will take place Sunday, July 24, 2011 and then the following Sunday (July 31, 2011), he will become the first player to have his number retired by the Blue Jays, other than Jackie Robinson whose No. 42 was retired league wide in 1997.
It's a very proud time for Blue Jays fans. Not only for fans old enough to remember the back-to-back championships in '92-'93 either, but for younger fans as well.
In honor of Roberto Alomar, here are the best second basemen in Toronto Blue Jays history.
