Regular season

One of the key events of the season was that the Toronto Blue Jays sold its first beer. Exhibition Stadium was the only stadium in the major leagues that did not sell beer. The Ontario Legislature reached a decision on July 7, 1982. Dr. Robert Elgie, the minister of Consumer and Commercial Relations announced that beer would be sold on a trial basis at Exhibition Stadium (along with Hamilton’s Ivor Wynne Stadium and Ottawa’s Lansdowne Park).
