Description

What started as a baseball season like any other became the most thrilling sports story of 2015 Canada's team began the season with as many losses as wins, but things changed rapidly. With inspired moves by management at the trade deadline, and a bullpen rally not seen since the back-to-back championships of 1992 and 1993, they were back on top. The boys in blue went on to score 891 runs—127 runs more than the next best team—and finished with a superb record from the trade deadline onward. When they clinched a play-off spot, Toronto was ecstatic. When they took the division title, beating their long-time AL East rivals in New York, fans everywhere cheered with excitement and support. And, in their first post-season appearance in 22 years, the entire country erupted in celebration. Here, in this special commemorative book, relive the entire spectacular 2015 run—from the outlook at training camp and the struggle of the early season, to the brilliant trades, to the stellar run to the post-season. And, yes, the game five drama against Texas. Beautifully illustrated with action and candid photographs, and with exclusive content from the Toronto Star, this is the must-have book for every fan. Content previously published by the Toronto Star.
