Toronto Blue Jays 5 ~ Kansas City Royals 1, Rogers Centre, Toronto, ON

Due to Covid, the Toronto Blue Jays have been playing their home games in Dunedin, FL, and Buffalo the last two years.

They came home on Friday to start playing their home games here in Toronto ... whoohoo!  And Gord were at this afternoon's game ... they were playing the Kansas City Royals. 

We got there about an hour before the game started ... we wanted to be there in plenty of time because of safety protocols, etc.  As it turned out, there was no line-up and we were in in minutes.

There was a maximum of 15,000 permitted in the Rogers Centre (it holds almost 50,000).  Unless you were drinking or eating, you had to wear a mask.

Here are Gord and I ...

The roof was closed but opened just before the game started and the threat of rain passed.  Yay!

Ace, the Jays' mascot, was out and about ... even he was wearing a mask.

And the game began ...

The Jays won 5 - 1.  Whoohoo!

Here's Gord next to Teoscar Hernandez ... Gord has his in my fantasy baseball league.

It was good to be back at a ballgame.  It had been about two years since I'd last seen the Jays play and being at a game brought a sense of "normalcy".  The vibe in the Rogers Centre was fun but safe.
