Blue Jays from Away is written and edited by Blue Jays blogger Jay Blue. Dr. Blue (not that kind of doctor) is a longtime Blue Jays fan who has lived in the US and in Europe. Started as a way of keeping tabs on his hometown Blue Jays while living in Europe, Blue Jays from Away has grown to become the most in-depth Toronto Blue Jays minor league site.
Jay Blue is a full-time professional musician and ethnomusicologist (with a PhD) who indulges his other passion, baseball, on this site. Dr. Blue has written academic articles in peer-reviewed journals, performed on stages throughout Canada, the US, and Europe and has had his music played on radio and TV on four continents.
Dr. Blue is the co-author of the 2014 Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Handbook and the sole author of the 2014 All-Star Break Supplement and 2015 TBJ MiL Handbook. The 2016 Handbook will also be available soon.
Emily is a Communications student who grew up with a Roy Halladay poster on the back of her door. A baseball history nerd, she played softball for nine years and changes her favourite Blue Jay on a regular basis. She fondly remembers going to her first Jays game at age six with her father, and spending the whole time staring at the elevators going up the CN Tower.
Jory is an avid Blue Jays fan and has been his entire life and rarely misses a game – although living on the Canadian prairies he is proud to have watched his Blue Jays in 9 different MLB stadiums (including the Rogers Centre nearly a dozen times). His favourite in-person moment was Tulo’s bases clearing double in the ALCS while his favourite stadium has been AT&T Park in San Francisco.
