The Toronto Blue Jays franchise is getting close to 50 years old, and throughout that time, they haven't had a more stacked position than first base. For a position where offense is key, there have been some absolute killers at the plate for the Jays. Decades have been defined by some of the talent the Jays were able to have at first, and their memories continue to live on in the fans that watched their primes.
Making a list of just 5 players to crown as the best first basemen for the Blue Jays is easier said than done, but it's worth commemorating some of the biggest contributors to the franchise, and who holds the crown as the best Jays first baseman of all time. This list covers the statistics that are often deemed most important for a first baseman, among other factors that signify these players importance as Jays. Unsurprisingly, this list only covers stats done during their Jays tenure, so any player who went on to be greater with another team does not apply here. Even if some players were not around as long as others, if the production was there, their name will not be omitted. The players also need to be primary first basemen, so elite bats like Edwin Encarnacion do not make the cut, as he was more of a designated hitter than anything else with the Jays.
Without any further ado, take a step back through Blue Jays history, and be reminded of all the great players that signified this organization. This is the Blue Jays' top 5 first basemen of all time.
