You couldn’t have asked for a better few days in Alberta for the Blue Jays Academy Honda Super Camp.
The annual nationwide trek started with a two-day stop in St. Albert on Tuesday and Wednesday. A handful of Blue Jays alumni showed kids between the ages of nine and 16 some tricks of the trade.
The American League MVP in 1987, George Bell, handled the hitting duties, while catcher J.P. Arencibia framed up tips in the bullpen, Rick Romero tossed out some pointers to pitching prospects and Homer Bush handled the infield drills.
The stop also included a special unveiling of the Millar Field House, in honour of St. Albert Minor Baseball Association President Kurtis Millar.

The field house was put together in partnership between the association and the Jays Care Foundation that was announced in 2018.

Then it was onto Okotoks for Thursday and Friday, where Mother Nature couldn’t have handed those in attendance a better pair of days.
