The original O-Pee-Chee Topps playing cards have some of the very few available photos of this ballpark when the Blue Jays first came to town in 1977 (Phil Roof and Tom Bruno). This first Blue Jays team that came to this ballpark was an expansion upstart and played like it on the field. There is some video available showing plenty of bloops and misplays during this team's very first attempts at baseball here in 1977. There were only two hitters which were consistent at the plate... Roy Howell (10 HR, .316) and DH Ron Fairly (24 2B, 19 HR, .279) who provided all the power when this team went north to play in the makeshift Toronto stadium known as Exhibition Park. Jerry Garvin would lose 18 games 1977 as a starter while Jesse Jefferson would lose 17 and Dave Lemanczyk would lose 16 as that inaugural team finished with an awful 54-107 record. It would take a few years before the Blue Jays would come to this ballpark as possible contenders with the team losing 109 games in 1979 behind Phil Huffman (6-18, 5.77).
