Jays colours would just cap it

Unless the Baseball Hall of Fame is looking to create an international incident — and we’ve seen no evidence of that — then it seems safe to guess that Robbie Alomar will be inducted with a Blue Jays cap.

It’s Alomar’s fervent wish and there is little reason to think the Hall will disagree.

“If it would be my choice, I would love to pick the Toronto Blue Jays,” said Alomar.

“The choice is out of my hands. It is in the Hall of Fame’s hands. But I would pick the Blue Jays. I would love to wear the hat.

“This is where I belong. Toronto, the city, deserves this. I hope the Hall of Fame will understand that I won two World Series here, had great years and I represent Toronto with a lot of pride.”

The Jays have had former players Paul Molitor and Dave Winfield inducted but Molitor, went in as a Milwaukee Brewer, Winfield as a San Diego Padre.

“It would be a great thrill to be the first Hall of Fame member to go in under the Blue Jay hat,” said Alomar. “I hope the Hall of Fame will give me a chance to give Toronto that gift.

“Toronto to me, is my second home. It was a blessing that I got the opportunity to play here for five years, a blessing that I had the chance to play in front of fans who loved the game.”
