The TORONTO BLUE JAYS will conduct seven Honda Super Camps across seven cities from June through August, as they continue their commitment to amateur baseball across Canada.

In conjunction with title sponsor Honda Canada Inc., the Super Camps will commence in Vancouver from June 27-29 at Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium, the home of Class A affiliate the Vancouver Canadians of the Northwest League. Blue Jays alumni, Ed Sprague, Duane Ward, Lloyd Moseby and Roberto Alomar will be guest instructors in Vancouver, assisting the team from Baseball Canada as they provide instruction to approximately 150 registrants. The instruction will continue through the summer with camps being held in Prince George, London, Halifax, Ottawa, Calgary, and concluding in Toronto. Former Blue Jays Mark Eichhorn, Rance Mulliniks, Lloyd Moseby, Duane Ward, Candy Maldonado, Alex Gonzalez, Brian McRae and Tony Fernandez will also take part throughout the summer along with Baseball Canada instructors.

"We are very proud to partner with the Blue Jays on this significant initiative. Together we continue to grow this game across Canada and programs such as this provide our players future with the fundamental skills they need, while enhancing their enjoyment of this great game" - Jim Baba, Director General, Baseball Canada.
