The Toronto Blue Jays recently received an incredible audience at the Rogers Center.
On Monday, Jess welcomed former pitcher Mark Buhrell to their stadium.
Buhrel pitched for the Blue Jays from 2013 to 2015 and did very well.
Pitching hard AL East in these three seasons, the left-handed batsman had a 40-28 record, 3.78 ERA and 349 strikeouts in 604.1 frames.
“Look who came to see us! Hello, Papa Buerley, “wrote Blue Jess on his Twitter account Monday night.

Buhrel is a welcome guest at Toronto’s Ballpark, as he was part of the start of the reconstruction process where he saw the Jets go from fifth in the division in 2013, to third in 2014 and to the American League Championship series in 2015.
In just three seasons, he has done enough to win the love of Toronto fans.
However, he is a legend in Chicago.
Really amazing career
From 2000 to 2011, he was part of the White Sox rotation, even winning the unforgettable 2005 World Series against the Houston Astros.
He finished fifth in the Sai Young voting that year.
With a 214-160 lifetime record, a 3.81 ERA, and 1,870 strikeouts in 3,283.1 innings, Buhrel has been part of the Hall of Fame ballot for the past two seasons.
In fact, with 5.8 percent of the ballot in 2022, he will be there next year.
He probably wouldn’t go to Cooperstown, but he had an amazing career that many children would dream of.
He has won the World Series, pitched for several teams, was close to winning the Best Pitcher award in one season and a hero in two cities.
Buhrel was a notable MLB contributor in the 2000s and early 2010s.
