The Birtle Blue Jays were a small town team that played in the Manitoba Senior Baseball League. They competed at a high calibre level and were an extremely successful team.
In 1999 they lost in the title in Manitoba Senior Baseball League Championship Finals in a seven game series that went right to the last game. The following year they redeemed themselves, by winning the M.S.B.L. Championships and taking home the Manitoba Senior AAA Crown. This feat was accomplished once again in 2002 and 2004.
In 2001 the Blue Jays attended the Nationals in Kentville, Nova Scotia. The tournament had a brilliant outcome with the Blue Jays will the President’s Cup. In 2003 they attended Nationals once more but were not as successful, losing in the semi-final game. After winning their third M.S.B.L. Championship and AAA Crown in 2004 they attended Nationals in Kamploops B.C. in 2005.
