1994 Toronto Blue Jays season

The 1994 Toronto Blue Jays season was the franchise's eighteenth season of Major League Baseball. It resulted in the Blue Jays finishing third in the American League East with a record of 55 wins and 60 losses. Cito Gaston was the manager for the American League squad at the All-Star Game. The Mid-Summer classic was played on July 12 at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh. Roberto Alomar and Joe Carter were starters at the event, while Pat Hentgen and Paul Molitor were named as reserves.

The season was cut short by the infamous 1994 player's strike, technically leaving the Blue Jays as the reigning World Champions.
