I am sorry but I have not been able to find the answer to your question. I have found the website of the team, which is now called the Tennessee Smokies, and a website that lists all of the Toronto Blue Jays minor leaguers that were in their system. Unfortunately, neither one of the sites lists player numbers. But maybe you could contact them through e-mail to find out the answer. The team website is www.smokiesbaseball.com and the link to thewebsite with the minor leaguers listed is http://www.battersbox.ca/article.php?story=20040125031506999 I am sorry I couldn't be of more help. Good luck in your search!

Right now you cant get Sportsnet 1 in Canada unless you are a Rogers cable subscriber. This leaves out those of us who are subscribers to Shaw, Cogeco or Eastlink. Too bad, so sad as far as Rogers is concerned. They are trying to reach a deal to show Jays games on these other cable networks - but it will eventually cost us money to subscribe to this new channel which was created to earn more money for Rogers.
they are BLUE that's why there called Blue Jay
That was former Dodgers and Angels pitcher Bill Singer. Singer gave up 11 hits and 4 runs in 4 1/3 innings but the Blue Jays still won, 9-5, against the White Sox.
