Blue Jays comment on passing of Mel Didier

Mel Didier

“Mel had a tremendous career in sports whether coaching football, his personal friendship with the legendary Bear Bryant or his unbelievably successful career in baseball.  For over 60 years in professional baseball, the last seven of which with the Toronto Blue Jays, Mel was a dear friend to everyone in baseball.  Few men in our great game have had universal admiration throughout baseball as Mel Didier did.  On behalf of the Toronto Blue Jays, I would like to extend my sincere condolences and sympathies to his wife Elena and the entire Didier family.”

Paul Beeston, President Emeritus, Toronto Blue Jays
