Picture of the Day: J.P. Arencibia and a very young fan

Jan 8, 2012, 5:08 PM EDT

Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia is participating in the team’s “Winter Tour” this weekend, meeting admirers and signing autographs in various Canadian cities. The photo below comes from Ottawa, where the 26-year-old former first-round pick was asked to pose with an especially young Jays fan. Gotta get to ’em early.

    Holee crap! Looks like he’s havin’ a bit of trouble with that knuckleball…who handed him that kid? Wakefield? JP lookin’ pretty uncomfortable… & he needs to take of that watch, too.

    Whatever, though. Looks like the Beaver Men are recruiting hard core future prospects. That’s some advance scouting right there.

    Is that he and Heidi Watney’s baby?

    The tour is going east this year. It is very popular with the Jays fans outside Toronto.

      Why they chose to go to St. Laurent mall I have no idea. Rideau would have been a better choice

        Don’t know; however I like the idea as friends of mine just opened their second Ottawa restaurant on St Laurent. It is a bit south of the Mall.

        what’s the name of the restaurant?

        168 Sushi Asian Buffet. They started the business here in in Brampton 5 years ago and now have 6 restaurants, however, they do not have time to watch baseball.

        They’ve got great reviews on urbanspoon, and it’s AYCE so I’ll definitely check it out in the near future

    Would love to see them coming to Halifax as well. Of course maybe Kevin Cash’s advance scouting didn’t say much about the area…

      According to the web site, they will be in Halifax on Jan 12.
