Major League Baseball made its formal return to Buffalo City for the 1st time in 32 Years. This follows after the Toronto Blue Jays made their first appearance at Buffalo’s Sahlen Field. Failed negotiations with the Canadian Federal Government forced TBJ Organizers to locate a new home stadium for 2020 or face being removed from the season for failure to compete. The Toronto Blue Jays delegated with various State Governments being receiving approval from New York to operate in Buffalo. Unfortunately, the Blue Jay’s opening game at Sahlen Field proved unfavourable. The Miami Marlins dominated over Toronto on August 11th.
MLB Analysts aren’t shocked with Toronto’s loss to the Miami Marlins, with the Blue Jays given considerably less training time than competing teams. The Canadian Federal & Ontario Provincial Governments wouldn’t allow TBJ to train at the Roger’s Arena until several days before their departure to Buffalo. Most other MLB teams received upwards of one month for training. This hasn’t deterred Toronto baseballers & coaching personnel, who have declared their working diligently into improving strategies in this newfound era of MLB.
Toronto Blue Jays Pitcher Tanner Roark spoke with TSN, praising his team’s coaching personnel & organizers for selecting Buffalo’s Sahlen Field for their 2020 home stadium. Tanner voted for Sahlen Field, knowing that Toronto will be the underdogs for MLBs 2020 season & that selecting a Minor League stadium will drive his fellow players to become champion winners.
A Short History of Sahlen Field
It should be mentioned that Sahlen Field hasn’t been used in Major League Baseball, requiring stadium owners to upgrade & retrofit the location for MLB standards. Sahlen Field looks more like an American representation of the Toronto Blue Jays than the home stadium of Buffalo Bison’s.
Sahlen Field holds a distinguished record to its name, being the largest-capacity Minor League Baseball Park in America. Sixteen thousand seats are filled by Buffalo civilians regularly. Those seats have been unfilled & remain that way until the COVID-19 Pandemic is concluded, meaning the Toronto Blue Jays aren’t permitted to have supporters. Fans of the Blue Jays
