“Mark’s leadership and commitment to excellence over the last five years have been critical to the team’s growth and development.”
“We’re extremely pleased that Mark will continue to lead the Toronto Blue Jays and build on the team’s progress as we work towards our goal of bringing a World Series championship back to Canada.”
