Alomar expresses desire to work for Blue Jays

Sixteen years after he helped bring consecutive World Series championships to the Blue Jays, retired second baseman Roberto Alomar said Friday that he'd like to work for the franchise someday.

TORONTO —

Sixteen years after he helped bring consecutive World Series championships to the Blue Jays, retired second baseman Roberto Alomar said Friday that he'd like to work for the franchise someday.

Alomar was one of 35 coaches and players from the 1992 and 1993 championship teams who returned for a reunion this weekend. They played golf and attended a dinner on Thursday, then were honored on the field before Friday night's game against Baltimore.

Blue Jays manager Cito Gaston, who also managed those championship teams, threw out the first pitch to Pat Borders, the MVP of the '92 World Series victory over Atlanta. Alomar got one of the loudest ovations, along with Tony Fernandez, Dave Winfield, Paul Molitor and Joe Carter, whose home run off Mitch Williams clinched the '93 win over Philadelphia.
