This isn't the best photo in my album but I'm glad I was able to capture John & Kelly Olerud with their son Garrett while they were in town for the Blue Jays' Flashback Friday a week ago.
We had a great time with them. Matthew and Nathan were thrilled to play with Garrett in the Olerud's Renaissance Hotel room and get their own media passes. Later they were able to meet the GM, J. P. Ricciardi and the field manager, John Gibbons.
The Oleruds have been such great friends for many years and I was thrilled that John called me to invite to Toronto to spend the day with them.
Retirement has been good for John. He's barely had a moment to himself as he's been helping Kelly with all the responsibilities of raising their three children.
