The Blue Jays' most prestigious honor for the first 35 years of their existence was a spot on the Level of Excellence. But Roberto Alomar's Hall of Fame career seemed fit for an even bigger celebration.
In the summer of 2011, Toronto broke with franchise tradition by deciding to retire Alomar's No. 12 shortly after he was inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame. Soon-to-be Hall of Famer Roy Halladay's No. 32 joined Alomar's in the rafters seven years later following his tragic death in Florida.
