With spring training in full swing and regular season games just weeks away, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear to your next Toronto Blue Jays game. I, myself like to prepare well in advance, because going to a game isn’t just about watching Kevin Pillar dive 11 ft to catch a fly ball, or watching Bautista hit yet another dinger. It’s about the atmosphere and how to completely immerse yourself into the team spirit. Here are my suggestions on how to get geared up without spending a fortune on an authentic jersey.
This online Etsy shop offers one single Blue Jays item: a plain white tee with a half-eaten Blue Jays donut on it. Who doesn’t like to mix their favourite food with their favourite baseball team? It’s described as unisex, so anyone can sport this unique apparel.
Loyal to a Tee baseball has a variety of options for both men and women. They also offer the only Blue Jays iPhone case on this list, including the sassy “the 6ix ain’t friendly”. I’m also a huge fan of their Instagram account, which is what sold me in the first place.
Another Etsy option for the men out there. Why not kill two birds with one stone and advertise your love for the 6ix? Toronto fans will love this simple design that comes in the form of a simple tee, a hoodie, or baseball tee. But hurry, they’re selling fast!
The Button Machine is your go-to stop for quirky Toronto apparel of all kinds. Aside from this crude R. A. Dickey tee, they sell toques, buttons and totes. (Psst, check out that cute ‘Turonno’ crew neck!)
The Jay Walk has their own online store and provides the widest range of options for both men and women. My favourite? “Running through the 6ix with my Stro”. Get it?
Every spring, Victoria’s Secret PINK releases a fresh line of MLB gear. This year, unfortunately, the Blue Jays line is not available to order online. But fear not, ladies, you can still get your sequined baseball tee or tank at any Toronto location, including the Eaton Centre, Yorkdale, and Scarborough Town Centre.
For both men and women, CryWolf offers an alternative design to the traditional Blue Jays logo. In addition to a plain tee, they also have baseball tees and tank tops. You don’t have to purchase online, though; if you’d rather check out their other options, they’re located at 91 Ossington Ave. near Queen St. W.
