Blue Jays to play majority of home games in Buffalo amid pandemic

Toronto Blue Jays are on the verge of playing most of the MLB games in Buffalo, as their city continues to be ravaged by the COVID pandemic. They will be playing at Sahlen Field where the Buffalo Bisons, their Triple-A affiliate play.

Blue Jays President Mark Shapiro expressed his gratitude towards the Buffalo Bisons, the staff, the players, and the fans on supporting the team even through such tough times. “This process has no doubt tested our team’s resilience, but our players and staff refuse to make excuses — we are determined to take the field on Opening Day today.” Their first away game would be with the Washington Nationals, in an attempt to make sure that the Buffalo Bisons field has all the protection necessary to hoist an MLB game.

Later, they would veer off against the Phillies, or the Marlins in July or August respectively in Buffalo.

The Blue Jays have since forever been seeking a place to play, with the Canadian government refusing them their stadium in Toronto. They also couldn’t get through Pennsylvania due to the team itself playing in Pittsburgh to ease themselves in traveling throughout the country.
