The 2012 Toronto Blue Jays season was the 36th season of Major League Baseball's Toronto Blue Jays franchise, and the 23rd full season of play (24th overall) at the Rogers Centre. Their opening game was played on April 5 against the Cleveland Indians in Cleveland. The Blue Jays finished 73–89, in fourth place in the American League East.

New identity

On November 18, 2011, the Blue Jays unveiled a new logo and uniforms for the 2012 season. The logo and all-white home uniform bear a strong resemblance to the original logo and home uniforms, used from 1977 to 1996. The grey road uniform resembles those used from 1989 to 1996, and the alternate royal blue jersey—to be used for home and road games—resembles those used from 1994 to 1996, as well as the batting practice jerseys used from 1982 to 1996.

Spring training

The Blue Jays had a 24–7 win–loss record in spring training, their .774 winning percentage being the best of all MLB teams during pre-season. One of their games finished tied and was therefore not included in the standings.[1]
