[ERRATUM: On 2017-03-17, the official Jeopardy! web site noted that the clue 'incorrectly placed the event in 2016, when in fact it took place in 2015. We did get the year wrong, and we have marked the clue as an error in our database. Thank you to the loyal Blue Jays fans for pointing it out! – The Jeopardy! Writers".]
