A couple of Blue Jays will be spending a few days in Winnipeg this winter.
Colby Rasmus and Anthony Gose, outfielders for the Toronto Blue Jays, are scheduled to be in the city for two days in January as part of the major league baseball club’s WinterTour.
Rasmus and Gose will sign autographs at Polo Park Shopping Centre on Sunday, Jan. 6 and then will visit students and staff at Ecole Van Walleghem School in Linden Woods on Monday, Jan. 7. The players will talk about healthy living and positive lifestyles with the kids of the Kindergarten to Grade 8 school.
The Blue Jays Winter Tour begins in Toronto and then hits Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Edmonton.
Catcher J.P. Arencibia and pitcher Drew Hutchison, recuperting from elbow surgery, join the tour in Saskatoon on Jan. 11.
"When we re-launched the Blue Jays Winter Tour in 2010 we had a vision of sharing our enthusiasm for baseball with all our fans across the country," said club president Paul Beeston. "The ability to reach out to communities outside of (Toronto) has signified our commitment as a representative for baseball for the entire nation.
"The reaction we have received from our fans on recent tours is an indication that the passion for baseball and the Blue Jays is alive and well and we look forward to each tour stop with much anticipation."
