For the Toronto Blue Jays, the past is emerging to salute the future as the AL East champions enter their first playoff season in 22 years.

The Jays have a long list of excellent former players. And just a few of them emerged on social media in recent days to cheer them on — or at least offer some kind words.

There was Roberto Alomar ...

Who hit dingers like this.

There was Roy Halladay ...

Who could pitch a whole game and only give up one hit.

(And even a perfect game.)

There was Joe Carter.

A World Series hero.

And Vernon Wells.

Just look how far he hits that ball!

There was Carlos Delgado.

The "greatest slugger in Blue Jays history."

There was Jose Reyes.

Who was only traded away this season.

(What a sport.)

There was Ed Sprague.

Who put the Jays ahead with this homer against the Braves in 1992.

There was Todd Stottlemyre.

A fiery player if ever there was one.

And finally, there was J.P. Arencibia.

Who showed us how tough it is to catch R.A. Dickey's knuckleball.
