Threshers vs. D-Jays: It’s a hometown rivalry as old as time — or at least it’s been brewing for several decades.
But with towns and teams that bump up against each other, the city limits don’t always delineate the Jays fans from the Threshers.
It can be difficult to predict who will fall on which side when you look at which Minor League team has a longer history in each town (Clearwater since 1985, Dunedin since 1990), which draws more fans (Clearwater with 173,618 fans for the 2011 season), or which has the better team (the Dunedin Blue Jays took the North Division Florida State League title last year).
Are you a longtime Dunedin resident who wears a red Threshers cap, or maybe a Clearwater resident who sports the bird and maple leaf?
