George Bell 1985

Blue Jays: Circa 1985

This is one of my earliest Blue Jays memories. 1985 was an amazing season. In 1983 the Blue Jays traded for Doyle Alexander. In 1985, Doyle pitched a complete game against the New York Yankees to win their first American League East Championship. My favourite player, George Bell caught the final out for the win!

In 1986, the Jays traded Doyle to the Atlanta Braves for future star Duane Ward who helped the Jays win their back-to-back World Series in 1992 and 1993.
