The Toronto Blue Jays have been in Major League Baseball since 1977. A lot has changed since then, as the team has found a new home in Rogers Centre, and found itself the only team in Canada after the Expos left in 2004. The Blue Jays’ history is long, featuring a number of franchise icons. Tony Fernandez, Roy Halladay, and slugger Joe Carter are just a few that have become iconic Blue Jays over the years. But how many World Series titles have the Jays brought home to Canada? Let’s answer that question.
Toronto Blue Jays World Series history
The Toronto Blue Jays franchise has won two World Series championships the team’s entry into MLB in 1977.
Toronto won back-to-back World Series championships in 1992 & 1993. The 1992 Blue Jays won 96 games, and defeated the Oakland Athletics (ALCS) and Atlanta Braves (World Series) to clinch the team’s first crown. That roster featured multiple Hall of Famers in Roberto Alomar, Jack Morris, and a 40-year old Dave Winfield.
1993 saw the Blue Jays successfully defend their crown, defeating the White Sox in the ALCS before beating the Phillies in six games to clinch their second straight World Series title. The 1993 roster includes many of the cast of the characters that starred for Toronto in 1992, including Alomar, Pat Borders, John Olerud, Pat Hentgen, and Joe Carter. The 1993 Blue Jays, though, did have two other notable names that joined the roster, in Baseball Hall of Famers Rickey Henderson and Paul Molitor. Henderson struggled after coming over from Oakland mid-season, while Molitor flourished. Paul Molitor led all MLB hitters with Toronto in 1993 in hits (211), and drove 111 runs en route to finishing second in the AL MVP race.
The 1993 World Series also saw one of the more famous moments in MLB history, as Joe Carter ended Game 6 and the series with a walk-off, three-run home run off of Phillies closer Mitch Williams.
Toronto has made the playoffs several times (2015, 2016, 2020, 2022) since that run in 1993, but have failed to win a third World Series title in each of the Blue Jays’ subsequent runs.
