John Axford found an old photo of him in Blue Jays jammies days after signing with the organization
When Canada native John Axford signed a Minor League deal with the Blue Jays on Friday, we knew it would be somewhat of a reunion for him. The 34-year-old reliever was born and raised in Ontario, so locating any type of clothing that had a Jays logo printed on it shouldn't have been difficult. Luckily for us, on Sunday, Axford found and shared a photo of him back in the '90's sporting some Toronto pajamas:
Christmas morning 1994 in Port Dover, Ontario. Decked out in my @BlueJays gear! Somehow, I am happier now than I was in this picture! Beyond excited for this opportunity!!! 🇨⚾️ pic.twitter.com/zdJcxrXW83- John Axford (@JohnAxford) February 11, 2018
The journeyman gets to represent his home organization and says he is happier now than he was in this photo from Christmas Day in 1994.
We also now have photographic evidence of Axford before his epic mustache.
