This Day in Sports History - 4/7/1977

The Blue Jays play their first regular season game, the first American League game staged outside the United States. Their opponents are the Chicago White Sox, and the contest is played in near-freezing temperatures and snow flurries at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto. The Blue Jays win, 9 - 5, as the White Sox strand 19 men on base. Doug Ault contributes the first Toronto hit, home run, run scored and RBI on one swing with a first-inning solo homer.
