Watch Toronto Blue Jays’ Insane Division Title Celebration [VIDEO]
The last time the Toronto Blue Jays went to the postseason was 1993. You can imagine that after a long playoff drought, the team was ready to celebrate yesterday when they clinched the AL East. The only downside was that they had to do it on the road in Baltimore. The Jays crushed the Orioles 15-2 in the first game of a doubleheader at Camden Yards. When the team returned to their clubhouse after the final out, it was time to celebrate.
Here is how the celebration got started, courtesy of 42-year old reliever LaTroy Hawkins.
One of the stars of the team is third baseman Josh Donaldson, who has put up MVP numbers this season in Toronto with a .300 batting average, 41 homers, and 123 RBIs. Donaldson, who came to the Jays this offseason in a trade from Oakland, was ready to party like Frank "The Tank" from Old School.
The Blue Jays currently have a one-game lead over the Royals for the best overall record in the American League, which would give them home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Toronto also owns the tiebreaker. If they hold on for the top spot, they would play the winner of the AL Wild Card game.
