The Toronto Blue Jays narrowly missed the postseason in 2021, with the American League Wild Card race being a top-heavy, four-team battle down the stretch.
Toronto finished 91-71, one game behind the New York Yankees for the second AL Wild Card.
But this year, the Blue Jays are ready to come back stronger and prove to the baseball world that they’re ready to contend for a title.
They haven’t made the postseason since 2016, but they plan on changing that.
And what better way to show the game that you’re serious about winning than to make an amazing diving play?
GEORGE SPRINGER CATCH OF THE YEAR?!

Catch Of The Year?
The Blue Jays have new life in 2022.
This team is stacked and dangerous as they look to make a run at a championship.
But this catch might just be the catch of the year so far.
The amount of ground Springer had to cover just shows how athletic he is out in center field.
And he covered it all in an extremely short amount of time.
That line drive had extra bases written all over it.
If that wasn’t caught, Plawecki would have at least had a double, if not a triple.
But Springer’s catch saved the day for Toronto.
There just seems to be some extra energy within the Blue Jays’ clubhouse in 2022.
They are out to prove that they intend to win and compete with the best teams in baseball.
If that catch wasn’t proof enough, then teams are in for a nasty surprise when they cross paths with Toronto this season.
