Blue Jays ask Canadian government for permission to return to Toronto

The Jays have made their request to begin playing at the Rogers Centre again. A source tells 2 On Your Side July 30 is a possible date.

Buffalo baseball fans, your days of watching the Toronto Blue Jays at Sahlen Field may be numbered.

The Blue Jays confirm that they have made their request to the Canadian government to begin playing at the Rogers Centre.

"We continue to push towards our goal of coming home to our fans at Rogers Centre this summer," a team spokesperson said.

A source tells 2 On Your Side that one possible date is July 30, when they begin a 10-game homestand. Another possible date would be the seven-game homestand starting August 20. 

The team says that it's already gotten approval from the City of Toronto and the province of Ontario.

The request comes as restrictions ease for returning Canadians who are fully vaccinated.
