Offseason

Regular season

  • April 27, 1985: Willie Aikens hit a home run in the last at-bat of his career.[6]
  • July 9, 1985: In a game between the Blue Jays and the Mariners at Seattle, Buck Martinez executed a double play by tagging out two runners at home plate. In the third inning, Phil Bradley was on second when Gorman Thomas singled. Bradley was tagged out at home, on a throw from Jesse Barfield to Martinez. There was a collision between Bradley and Martinez – Martinez broke his ankle. Martinez was sitting on the ground in agony and threw the ball to third base in an attempt to tag out Gorman Thomas. The throw went into left field and Thomas ran towards home plate. Toronto left fielder George Bell threw the ball back to Martinez. He was still seated on the ground in pain but was able to tag Gorman Thomas for the out. Martinez tagged out both runners at home plate.[7]
  • Dave Stieb led the American League with a 2.48 ERA and pitched 26 consecutive scoreless innings.
