Sparky threw out the first pitch of a Toronto Blue Jays game to kick off the team's Swing Into Summer Safety campaign. The Blue Jays are partnering with the Toronto Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council, the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management and participating Fire Departments to educate and raise awareness among school-age children and their families about fire safety and other injury prevention. The campaign got off to a great start, with Sparky pitching right to Blue Jays Ace's glove!
Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish from now through October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
