BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The Blue Jays are going to play in Buffalo again this year.
Last year, the Canadian government said the Blue Jays could not play in Toronto, and the team was also blocked from playing in Pittsburgh.
Ultimately, they ended up staying at the home of the Buffalo Bisons. And now, that’s going to happen again.
Former Bisons General Manager Mike Billoni recently spoke with News 4, saying he expected that the Blue Jays would be here in June.
“From everything we’re hearing out of Canada, I’d say fasten your seatbelts,” he said. “I think the Jays could be here all of the summer, possibly into October.”
News 4 confirmed on Wednesday morning that the team will, indeed, play here in June, with industry sources saying their first opponents at the field will be the Miami Marlins and the Houston Astros.
It’s not clear whether or not the Blue Jays will be here all season, though. The U.S.-Canada border remains closed to non-essential travel.
