Toronto Blue Jays 13, Minnesota Twins 3

Gord and I always go to the Blue Jays' home opener ... and tonight was this season's.

We had seats in the second level.

They started by presenting José Bautista with the Silver Slugger Award.

Roberto Alomar and Pat Gillick were honoured because they are being inducted into the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame as Blue Jays.

The Mounties came out for the singing of the national anthems.

Two of the "Billys" from Billy Elliot: The Musical sang the national anthems. This guy did the American one ...

And this one did the Canadian one ...

The game was sold out!

Let's play ball! The Twins were up first.

Then the Jays came up ...

The crowd went crazy waving the towels that were given out when Bautista came up to bat.

Here are Gord and I ...

The Jays won 13 - 3. Whoohoo!

J. P. Arencibia hit two home runs and a triple tonight ... and got a pie in the face just before an interview.

It was an exciting game ... definitely a great way to start the season.

Keep it up, Jays!

We watched it on TV and is was great. You can feel a really great energy this year with the Jays. We plan on going to some games too. Maybe we'll see you there.
