In addition to all the recipes from the Blue Jays players families, the magazine has quite a few great articles as well. There’s some great candid shots as evidenced below, when Ed Sprague measured up Jerry Howarth against John Olerud.
And then there’s a visual tutorial on grips for pitches courtesy of former Blue Jays pitching coach Galen Cisco.
Heck, there was even an insert where fans could win Joe Carter’s 1994 Honda Ex. It had a suggested retail value of $27,000 dollars, and was previously driven by Joe Carter. So maybe they should have renamed the contest “Win Joe Carter’s Used Car!”
I always love when baseball players are photographed outside of their natural environment. Here’s Pat Borders and Todd Stottlemyre having a “fish out of water” moment during a fishing trip.
Through Canadian Living, we also learned that in addition to fishing,
Stottlemyre enjoys grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
If you ever happen to stumble across the Canadian Living & the Blue Jays issue, I highly recommend picking one up. You can usually find them on eBay for less than $20 dollars, and it’s a great conversation starter for any dinner party.
