A former Blue Jays favourite is back in Toronto on Tuesday. Josh Donaldson's Toronto return will see Canadian baseball welcome the third baseman back to the 6ix for the first time since he signed for the Atlanta Braves. And it seems that as well as the excitement among Torontonians at his return, he's also living up to his nickname and affecting the city's weather.\nDonaldson, known ubiquitously as the Bringer of Rain, is back in Toronto tonight as the Braves begin a two-game stand at Rogers Centre.\nToronto's sporting focus, of course, has shifted onto the crowned NBA champion Raptors over the last 12 to 18 months. However, there's always room to welcome back a figure who was hugely popular among the city's sports fans.\nIf you're coming to the game between the #Braves #ChopOn and #BlueJays , be in your seats early. A video tribute to Josh Donaldson, on the occasion of his return to Toronto, will be shown at 7:01pm ET— Hazel Mae (@thehazelmae) August 27, 2019\nDonaldson, along with a select group of his former teammates including Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, is something of a symbolic figure among Jays fans.\nWhether it's his cannon arm from third base or that famous ALDS-clinching slide into home plate, he's representative of a tome when the Jays weren't the city's sporting afterthought - when, for 18 months or so, they were the 6ix's biggest stars.\n"He wanted to stay (in Toronto) his entire career."@braves Alex Anthopoulos spoke about Josh Donaldson's love for Toronto. pic.twitter.com/yRMjjmpeYi— Sportsnet (@Sportsnet) August 27, 2019\nThe Bringer of Rain's relationship with the Jays hierarchy is not thought to be good, given the manner of his departure.\nTonight is definitely one for the fans, who seem pumped to see their former hero again, different uniform or not.\nFYI jays tweeps, so I am pretty excited by the fact Josh Donaldson. Is in town, so there will be many JD tweets. #NotSorry pic.twitter.com/h1Mxowomii— liz (@biggles14) August 27, 2019\nMy son was just given a hand me down w Bringer of the Rain shirt :) Sure do miss Josh!!

Welcome back, Josh Donaldson, gone from the Jays but never forgotten. #MVP— Marshall Auerback (@Mauerback) August 27, 2019\nJosh Donaldson returns tonight, The Bringer of Rain returns; it is also raining today #LetsGoBlueJays pic.twitter.com/pO7t5fWZWY— Kombargi (@SpencerTheShark) August 27, 2019\nAccording to The Weather Network, Toronto is expecting to see showers throughout the day, evening, and overnight on Tuesday. Never has Donaldson's nickname been more literal.\nSo what does that mean for the Rogers Centre roof? As he himself used to say on damp days during the Jays' in-game roof report: "It's closed!"\nThere are stories everywhere.
