Heroes on the big screen

In 2003 the National Film Board of Canada premiered Jari Osborne’s documentary “Sleeping Tigers,” a hit with movie audiences in North America and Japan. That summer, the team was inducted into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, and honoured at Toronto’s SkyDome by the major league Blue Jays.
