“I’ve seen some pictures of some of the old Blue Jays, when they were still playing in the old ballpark,” said Zaun, who tried hard to hold back his laughter after the game. “I was thinking, ‘This is a total flashback.’ If he had the old [uniform] on, the chops, and the socks way up, it would’ve been so perfect.
