Blue Jays end the 2021 season with sweep against Baltimore

We bought nose bleeds tickets to Rogers Centre, so high no one was above us, to watch the Blue Jays crush the Baltimore Orioles in a weekend series that only ended in heartbreak as the Jays didn't have the points to get into the playoffs as a wildcard. Wins by the Yanks and Red Sox ensured that we were finished for the year, but they played great and it was fun to see them back in Toronto in front of fans once again.
The tickets for the seats so high in Rogers Centre that they were beyond the lights and our section was pretty dark.  We chose these seats to help social distance and not worry about squeezing in between other fans, and our plan worked, plus they were cheap - it's nice that they offer $15 tickets (plus fees and taxes) to help reduce the cost to attend a professional sports game.
Still the other costs associated with the game include the money required to buy food and drink in the stadium are pricey, luckily they let you bring in your own food and small bottles of non-alcoholic liquids so you don't have to chow down on a $11.50 hot dog. But why are the MLB sports paraphernalia so expensive? Baseball jerseys sell for around $190 plus tax so if you were thinking of buying some Jays wear you better start saving up if you want to buy one at the game.

Heavy hitter Vladimir Guerrero Jr. with 48 home runs in 2021 explains on the Jays website; "It hurts. Knowing that you win 91 games and you didn’t make the playoffs, it really hurts me, hurts all my teammates,” Guerrero said. “Like I said before, that’s just gonna make me stronger. [I’ll] come back next year even better than this year.”

Better luck next year Blue Jays, you did us proud.
