The managers met with the umpires before the game.

And the game began with Clayton Richard throwing the first pitch.
We were in section 120 ... just to the right of the batter's box. It was sunny and warm 24C (but felt like 26C) ... it felt a lot hotter since the sun was on us for most of the game.
Here's our view of the CN Tower from our seats.
Everyone loves Ace!
During the seventh inning, there is the Blue Jays stretch. Ace and Junior Ace encouraged everyone.
The Blue Jays won 11 - 4 ... yay!
As we were leaving, we past the Sportsnet broadcasting desk. A kid asked Jamie Campbell to sign a ball and as he did, Jamie told the kid how he knew the ball had been used in a game.
