No Quarantine Plan Doomed Blue Jay Games In Canada

No Quarantine Plan Doomed Blue Jay Games In Canada”

"This process has no doubt tested our team's resilience, but our players and staff refuse to make excuses - we are determined to take the field on Opening Day today, and for the coming months, with the same intensity and competitiveness that our fans expect".

It appeared as though the Blue Jays had an agreement in place to play at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, the home of the Pirates. Only days ago, Blue Jays outfielder Randal Grichuk characterized the option to play in Buffalo as a "worst-case" scenario. Canada has flattened the epidemic curve.

Health officials have blamed the spread primarily on bars and restaurants that were ignoring social-distancing orders, as well as residents returning from travel to virus hot spots.

The Jays front office had spent the past week looking at shared arrangements with other Major League Baseball teams and had an agreement in place with the Pittsburgh Pirates before it was overturned by Pennsylvania state officials. The Blue Jays, who are on the road until August 9, might not be able to play a "home" game until August 11, when they return from a six-game road swing.

It's a lot of work in a short period of time, but Biggio believes in the end the Blue Jays may benefit from their unique situation. He declined to name them.

The Jays announced on Friday morning that it will be based at Buffalo's Sahlen Field, home of their triple A affiliate Bisons.

The displaced Toronto Blue Jays will play in a minor league ballpark in Buffalo, New York, this year after being turned down by the Canadian government and blocked from playing in Pittsburgh by the state of Pennsylvania.

Gov. Jim Justice said during his Friday media briefing on the coronavirus that he called Major League Baseball and offered Appalachian Power Park in Charleston as a temporary home for the Blue Jays. The team will bear the majority, if not all, of the costs, he said.
