BUFFALO, N.Y. — Ahead of the Toronto Blue Jays’ home opener at Sahlen Field, 2 On Your Side wanted to know what changes that have been made to 32-year-old ballpark are permanent, and which are temporary?
On Wednesday, the Buffalo Bisons took to social media to promote the ‘wedding’ between the Bisons and Blue Jays with a picture showing off: ‘something new (infield), something borrowed (lights), and jokingly, something Blue... Jays.’
2 On Your Side reached out to the Toronto Blue Jays wondering with all the upgrades that are being made to Sahlen Field to be in compliance with MLB standards, which ones are permanent?
A spokesperson for the Blue Jays says that the visiting team compound, which is the tented area in the parking lot, and the additional lighting units are only temporary.
The permanent upgrades to Sahlen Field include: the replacement bulbs, the coats of fresh paint, and the new infield grass.
The spokesperson also says that more details on the upgrades to the ballpark will be made on Monday, the day before the Blue Jays’ home opener against the Miami Marlins.
