The Toronto Blue Jays will be playing their home games in Buffalo this season, making the decision just before their 60-game season begins Friday night against the Rays in Tampa Bay.
An official familiar with the matter told The Associated Press the Blue Jays will play at Sahlen Field, the park where the team's Triple-A affiliate plays.
The Jays were denied approval to play at the Rogers Centre by the federal government over the frequent cross-border trips required during the season.Читайте также: Airbus offers 'final' concession in jet subsidy dispute
The Jays front office had spent the past week looking at shared arrangements with other Major League Baseball teams and had an agreement in place with the Pittsburgh Pirates before it was overturned by Pennsylvania state officials.
"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, and for the coming months, with the same intensity and competitiveness that our fans expect". The Blue Jays had a plan in place with the Pittsburgh Pirates to share PNC Park but were denied at the finish line by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, which cited the risk of increased travel amid the continuing COVID-19.
The Jays will play their first two "home" dates in Washington, remaining in D.C. after a pair of games next week in which the World Series champion Nationals will be the home team.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
