R.I.P. Raphael Platner, “Program Guy”

The man known as Raph to his friends has been selling programs at Blue Jays games since the Exhibition Stadium days. People like Raph the Program Guy (and Rick the Blue Jay drummer, and Wayne the Ice Cold Beer vendor, et al) add a lot of flavour to the ballpark experience. I really get a kick out of seeing them doing their thing game after game year after year.

Raphael missed most of the 2014 Blue Jays season due to a prolonged illness. I found out today that he recently succumbed to the illness. In tribute I am sharing this selection of pictures I captured of him plying his trade. I like that it shows him outside/inside, standing/on the move, 100 level/500 level, and SkyDome/ACC.

July 1, 2011 pre-game outside gate 11
September 8, 2011 climbing the aisles in the 100 level
April 2, 2013 pre-game in the 500 level
February 21, 2014 lower bowl at the Raptors (last photo I have of him)

Two prior posts I did on Raph appear here and here.

Sad news for the BlueJays family.

Oh, this is sad. One of those guys that has been part of the gameday experience for such a long time.  :(

Benedict&#8217;s face aside&#8230; there&#8217;s kinda something about this poster. I dig it immensely.

Not the best view I could have had tonight, but now I know to avoid the Bell setup at RTH. The cast of #TheJudge (I hope I have this all right) - Dax Shepard, the director David Dobkin, Robert Duvall, producer Susan Downey, RDJ, (presumably) Emma Tremblay, Vera Farmiga, Jeremy Strong, and Vincent D&#8217;Onofrio (plus the giant light that ruined every picture I took). #tiff14
