There are plenty of awesome and thoughtful baseball stadiums in Canada for the Toronto Blue Jays to play a regular season game.

After Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred made the announcement that there will be more games like the Field of Dreams in Iowa going forward, that allowed the imaginations of baseball fans to run wild.

The Field of Dreams game was one of the highest rated regular season baseball game in the last 15 years. This has to be one of the reasons why Manfred and the owners are looking to pursue more games like this. Could you possibly see cities bidding to host Major League regular season baseball games? The economic benefit for local communities and cities would be astronomical, one would think.

It could also help baseball expand their reach and grow the game. It also could lead to more expansion ideas which would generate more money for Major League Baseball and its owners. Also, it would create more opportunities for players to stay in the Major Leagues.

In the following slides I present some ideas of where the Blue Jays can play some rivals for regular season games. The Blue Jays continue to be the only Major League Baseball team in Canada and I believe if they have an opportunity to play these regular season contests in these stadiums, that is a great opportunity to grow the game.

I’m going to suggest we go to the world’s oldest ballpark in the world. Yes, folks the world. We’ll also go to a ballpark on the west coast with a truckload of history and championships. We will also suggest an underrated beautiful ball park that houses a team in the American Association.
