toronto tiles fans can look forward to new ways to experience a baseball live game this season.
The Blue Jays unveiled the first full phase of renovations at Rogers Center today ahead of the team’s home opener next week.
All seating on the 500 level has been largely replaced to make room for open social spaces, including a park-like area for families and a rooftop patio for enjoying views of the Toronto skyline.
The outfield walls and bullpens have been raised, meaning relief pitchers will be warming up a few feet from the fans.
The updated ballpark was revealed after a dedication ceremony led by Blue Jays President and CEO Mark Shapiro along with Rogers President Edward Rogers and CEO Tony Staffieri.
Shapiro says the changes are aimed at catering to different types of fans, modernizing the fan experience, and bringing fans closer to players.
