Blue Jays receive official approval to hold MLB summer camp in Toronto

  • July 03, 2020

The Toronto Blue Jays will be able to return to their home park, along with the rest of the MLB teams that are beginning preparations for the shortened season. 

The Jays received official approval Thursday from the Canadian government to hold their “summer camp” at Rogers Centre — under a plan that requires players and team personnel to remain isolated from the public at the hotel adjacent to the ballpark.

Blue Jays players and coaches will be screened at the team’s spring training headquarters in Dunedin, Florida, and those who test negative for the coronavirus will be allowed to board one of the team’s charter flights to Toronto this weekend. 

The Rogers Centre roof is open for a September 2018 game between the Houston Astros and Toronto Blue Jays.

Once they arrive in Toronto, players and staff will stay inside their own bubble at the Rogers Centre.

According to SportsNet’s Ben Nicholson-Smith, they’ll conduct staggered workouts with modified layouts and take extra precautions to minimize their contact with hotel staff.
