Braeden's Wish

3-year-old Braeden, diagnosed with a cardiac condition, absolutely loves baseball and asks his parents to read him the baseball rule book all the time. He is very passionate about his favourite team­--the Toronto Blue Jays--so Braeden wished to be a Blue Jay!

Braeden’s mom says that watching the Blue Jay’s Russel Martin catching on TV inspired Braeden to learn how to squat and walk. “The Blue Jays have been his inspiration for everything!"

In July, the Toronto Blue Jays granted Braeden’s wish. He met Blue Jays players in the locker room, watched batting practice and hung out with ACE and Jose Bautista during the Jr. Jays Saturday starting lineup presented by Boston Pizza. Afterwards Braeden and his family watched the Blue Jay’s game.

Braeden can't stop talking about his wish day. “This experience meant everything to him.” Thank you to the Toronto Blue Jays for granting his wish and to Boston Pizza Northern Alberta for sponsoring his wish!
