The Kelowna Falcons are pleased to announce the Toronto Blue Jays have confirmed that Hall of Fame infielder and two time World Series champion Roberto Alomar will be in Kelowna July 9-11 as part of the Honda Super Camps for Kids.

Alomar would spend five seasons with the Blue Jays from 1991-1995, winning a World Series championship in 1992 and 1993. He would compile a .307 average over the five years, 832 hits, 55 homeruns, 342 RBIs and 206 steals. He would have his Blue Jays #12 jersey retired in Toronto in July of 2011
Alomar will join Duane Ward, Homer Bush, Lloyd Moseby, Rance Mulliniks, Kelowna native Paul Spoljaric and Roberto’s brother Sandy Alomar in Kelowna. The seven players will be the guest instructors at the Honda Super Camp for Kids, July 9-11 at Elks Stadium. These three-day camps offer children ages 10-16 – of all abilities – the ultimate Major League experience.
A number of Falcons from the 2012 roster will also be assisting at the Honda Super Camp.
Following the camp each day, the Falcons will host the Klamath Falls Gems at Elks Stadium.
