Schneider invited DJ to the Blue Jays clubhouse

TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays clubhouse had a unique vibe Saturday morning. As an alternative of soppy nation music or baseball highlights on the TV within the spacious room, the DJ performed a set that included home music, traditional rap and R&B songs from the late Nineteen Nineties.

Though the clubhouse normally has an ideal sound system that goes on after a giant win with a fog machine, Blue Jays interim supervisor John Schneider determined to shake issues up earlier than his recreation towards the visiting Detroit Tigers. He requested DJ Ray, an area Toronto act, to arrange his tools in the midst of the clubhouse and play music to get the Blue Jays hyped for his or her third recreation in 4 video games.

Biggio stated he did not ask DJ Ray out, however he noticed Blue Jays outfielder George Springer dancing in one of many membership’s basements.

“Springer by no means stops dancing,” Biggio stated with a smile. “Wherever you placed on any music, it is dancing.”

Schneider advised the gamers that DJ Ray could be coming just a few days upfront. Though Schneider did not personally make any requests — he has his personal sound system in his workplace — he requested the gamers to profit from the change of tempo.

“I feel it is enjoyable to take issues aside, he can take requests, he can do his personal factor,” Schneider stated. “I wish to maintain it mild and the blokes prefer it. I feel it is fairly cool.”

Schneider did not suppose video games would develop into an everyday fixture within the Blue Jays clubhouse until Toronto beat Detroit on Saturday afternoon.

“If we do not rating 28 in the present day, take 30 pictures,” Schneider stated with amusing as Eve and Gwen Stefani’s “Let Me Blow Ya Thoughts” floated from the clubhouse to his workplace. “It is only a day-by-day factor.

“You already know, the day recreation is the evening recreation. We’re simply having somewhat enjoyable.”
