Blue Jays’ 1st 2 homestands in Dunedin, Florida

Sports

TORONTO (AP/WIVB) — The Toronto Blue Jays will begin the season at their spring training facility in Dunedin, Florida.

Major League Baseball has signed off for the Blue Jays to play the first two homestands.

The Blue Jays played in Buffalo last season after the Canadian government didn’t allow the team to play in Canada because of the COVID-19 risk of frequent travel throughout the U.S.

Blue Jays CEO Mark Shapiro says the team could play in a “combination” of places this season, including Buffalo.

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown says the city “had a great experience” with the Blue Jays last year, and he “would be happy” to welcome them back to Sahlen Field.

The border remains closed to nonessential travelers who are not Canadian citizens; Canada requires those entering the country to isolate for 14 days.
