Toronto Blue Jays will play home games in Buffalo at Sahlen Field

The Toronto Blue Jays will play baseball in Buffalo this season.

Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement at a press conference on Friday.

The traveling squad for the team will likely be housed in Rochester, according to News10NBC.

The Blue Jays have been looking for a home after the Canadian government announced they were upholding the two-week quarantine period for people traveling across the border.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New York urged Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred in a letter to pick Buffalo.

“Since it is Opening Day, there is little time for continued deliberation – now is the time to act – and Buffalo is ready to roll out the red carpet and welcome Major League Baseball to Sahlen Field and Western New York,” he said. “I strongly urge MLB and the Blue Jays to choose Buffalo as your home for the 2020 season.”

The team began its shortened season in Tampa Bay on Friday. Their first home game isn’t scheduled until July 29th.

Games will be played at Sahlen Field.
