Blue Jays Home Opener Weekend

Starting the 2019 Major League Baseball season we were lucky to have the Toronto Blue Jays at home playing against the Detroit Tigers in Rogers Centre. From Thursday, March 28 to Sunday, March 31 the calls of Lets Go Blue Jays will ring out in the closed Skydome as the wave sweeps around the circular building. Sunday's game will start at 1:07pm just as winter has returned for a brief hammer of the city.

It was nice playing with you, NEXT

Saturday's game featured a giveaway of Blue Jays hoodies (one size fits all) for the first 15,000 fans and on the field of dreams the steady replacement of pitchers continued for both teams. Blue Jays crossed home plate three times that night, the Tigers came close but could not finish rounding the bases and now the record shows the Jays have won two games to date, the Tigers but one. Starting pitchers for the night were the Jay's Aaron Sanchez vs newbie Spencer Turnbull.

Opening Day weekend also has a very large 50-50 draw by Jays Care Foundation which guarantees a minimum winner's payday of $500,000. It has been accumulating throughout the home opener weekend and will be drawn on Sunday, March 31, 2019.

Other Blue Jays promotions in upcoming games include bobble head giveaways, loonie hot dogs and free hats. Check out their website for promotion details. Oh and $5 beer is available - one vendor on each level will offer regular beers cheaper than the seemingly unreasonable stadium prices.
