If you grew up in Toronto like I did the Rogers Centre is always going to be SkyDome for you. But that’s neither here or there. The fact is it’s one seriously large and modern stadium and has played host to most of Toronto’s biggest sporting moments including Joe Carter’s game 6 walk off home run in 1993 to win the World Series for the Jays. The Rogers Centre was the first stadium of its kind with a retractable roof and a lot of people still go there hoping they’ll see the thing being opened or closed cause it’s quite a sight.

Me and my gf went there for the last home game this year which was against the hated Yankees from New York. Even though the Jays had no chance of making the playoffs it was still a blast to go back to the stadium, where I hadn’t been for a couple of years. I’ve been in other ballparks south of the border and one thing I really appreciate about the Rogers Centre (still can’t get used to that name) is how friendly the people are that work there. It really makes the whole experience a lot more fun and relaxing.
It was a beautiful, warm fall afternoon and the place was pretty much sold out. We had good grandstand seats down the first base line and I came close to catching a foul ball. The game was never close as the Jays wound up beating the Yanks 9-5 to end the home part of the season on a high note. After the game we took the 2 minute walk over to the CN Tower and had dinner in the 360 restaurant overlooking the city. After that it was over to the A-Game Cafe for board games and dessert. My kind of day.
