The Ottawa man who designed the first rally towel in Toronto Blue Jays history visited CBC Radio's Ottawa Morning to share stories about the franchise's early days.
Irv Osterer, the head of fine arts at Merivale High School in Ottawa, brought a pair of Jays boxers, a ticket from the franchise's first ever game in the late 1970s and other memorabilia.
He shared stories, too, with host Robyn Bresnahan.
At one point, she asked, "Is that a pair of underpants?" Yes, it was a clean pair of boxers.
