Everyone loves the home run. Heck, Nike ran one of the most popular baseball commercials ever based on the obsession with the long ball. The Toronto Blue Jays have developed a rich history of hitting the long ball. Despite having some great pitching come through the city of Toronto, they’ve developed quite the reputation for being heavily reliant on the long ball. Whether it was the 80’s, the 90’s or well into the next century, the Blue Jays have compiled a great list of big boppers.

Now, it should be noted that Toronto’s domed stadium has become quite the haven for hitters. It is widely known as a good park to hit in. Its rather even dimensions lend itself to putting the ball in the cheap seats. Whether it is from a towering 5th deck moon shot or a line drive that just barely scrapes the wall in LF, there have been a number of bombs launched over the years.
We’ve seen some very good hitters adorn the Blue Jays’ uniform and enjoy the confines of SkyDome/Rogers Centre. They’ve delighted us with some awe inspiring blasts and some very magically timed shots too. So, we thought we’d take a look at the best home run hitters the Blue Jays have ever trotted out there. Let’s get to it.
