#26: Rogers Centre, Toronto Blue Jays

Number of Visits: 3 (2004, 2009)

Toronto Dad

The stadium opened in 1989 and the architecture certainly reflects that. Towering concrete walls decorate the outside. Inside, you’ll discover a slightly outdated concourse level. If you like intimate ballparks, this isn’t for you. This is a grand venue that is intimidating in size, yet managed to leave me slightly underwhelmed. I did like the vertical grade of the upper deck, keeping fans close to the action. As of 2015, Rogers Centre is the only ballpark to have a retractable roof and an artificial playing surface.

Toronto itself is a very nice city and people were friendly and welcoming to all of the visiting Yankees fans.
