Blue Jays announce November fantasy camp

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- The Blue Jays are offering fans an opportunity to participate in a fantasy camp with some of their favorite alumni from Nov. 15-20.

Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar, Kelly Gruber, George Bell, Lloyd Moseby, Jesse Barfield, Homer Bush, Duane Ward, Alex Gonzalez and other players to be named will be participating alongside fans during the six-day event.

The package will include round-trip airfare from Toronto to Tampa with five nights of hotel accommodations at the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa. All of the action will take place at the Bobby Mattick Training Complex and Florida Auto Exchange Stadium, where the Blue Jays host Spring Training every year.

"We are proud to be bringing back the very popular Blue Jays Fantasy Camp in 2015," said Stephen Brooks, who is the club's senior vice president of business operations. "This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allows fans to experience what it's like to be a Major Leaguer for a week. We are an organization rich in tradition, so an experience such as this is a must-do for any Blue Jays fan."

The package is being offered for $4,660 and requires a $1,000 deposit at the time of registration in order to secure a spot. Participants will receive instruction from the Blue Jays' alumni along with personalized home and away uniforms and their own locker at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium.

Other perks include a fitted cap, baseball pants with belt and two T-shirts. Transportation will be provided between the hotel and the training facilities and airport. The package also includes daily breakfast and lunch, plus social events throughout the week -- a welcome dinner, camper team draft and closing night awards. For an additional fee, participants can play a round of golf with alumni.

Interested participants can sign up at or call the Blue Jays Baseball Academy at 416-341-2500. Space is limited, and participants must be 21 years or older to attend the camp.
