Cecil P. Englebert Recreational Complex

By on August 2, 2017

Everybody in Dunedin, Fl. knows the Cecil P. Englebert Recreational Complex at 1700 Solon Ave. in Dunedin.  Most residents though don’t know the Bobby Mattick Complex the name the Toronto Blue Jays gave the same site in February 2003 over the objections of the City of Dunedin and its residents.  It’s a site with the same address as the Englebert Complex.  On that plot of city owned property leased to the Blue Jays is a field used by the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League Blue Jays to play their home games.  After each game a box score is filed with Minor League Baseball and it contains the venure where the games are played.  Well the Blue Jays say they play their home games at the Bobby Mattick Complex, the Blue Jays name for the city owned property named the Cecil P. Englebert Recreational Complex.  You can look it up on www.milb.com just click on the GCL League and check out the Blue Jays home box score and look at the venue.  Interesting eh?

(As an aside to all this Cecil P. Englebert is the former Mayor of Dunedin who talked the Toronto Blue Jays into hold spring training in the city when they were first awarded an AL franchise in 1976.
