MLB: Blue Jays hope to increase capacity for final stint in Toronto


The Toronto Blue Jays will be offering a new round of tickets ahead of their final home trip, with the hopes the Ontario government eases health restrictions to increase the capacity of the currently established Rogers Center to 15,000 spectators.

Canada’s only major league club is in the midst of a playoff race. There are currently six home games left to play, and possibly more if the Jays advance to the Major Baseball playoffs.

The Ontario squad is currently half a game away from the New York Yankees, who have the second and final pass awarded to teams drafted in the American League.

« We are working closely with the Premier’s Office, the Director of Public Health and the Ontario Minister of Sport (Lisa) MacLeod to increase the capacity of our stadium, while adhering to current health guidelines. », Mentioned the team by way of press release.

The Blue Jays will end their trip to Minnesota this week, and have a day off Monday before starting a crucial three-game series against the Yankees. The Torontonians will then end the season with a visit to the Baltimore Orioles.

The American League draft game is scheduled for October 5. The winning team will then play a series of best-of-five sections starting on the 7th.

The Blue Jays made the playoffs last year but were swept aside by the Tampa Bay Rays in a three-game series between the American drafted teams. It was their first qualifying appearance since 2016.

The last conquest of the Jays World Series dates back to 1993.
