Last game at Exhibition Stadium
Exhibition Stadium
On this date in 1989, the Blue Jays played their last game at Exhibition Stadium. George Bell's home run in the bottom of the 11th inning gave the Jays a 7-5 win over the Chicago White Sox.

Originally built for Canadian football in 1948, the stadium was demolished in 1999. Toronto FC's soccer stadium was built on the site in 2007.

Cliff Johnson
"He progressed along the basepaths at a terrific clip. A terrific clip for Heathcliff. Unfortunately what is a terrific clip for Johnson could easily be mistaken for the speed at which eras plod across the pages of history. Johnson slid into third with all the stately grace of an ocean liner docking. He would have been out if the Royals fielder had sent the throw by Canada Post"

Joey Slinger of the Toronto Star summed up Cliff Johnson's failed attempt to stretch a double into a triple in game 2 of the 1985 AL championship series.
