“We had discussions with the Orioles. I don’t know the latest details on this, ”Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan told The Associated Press of the potential Blue Jays transfer. “Obviously, we monitor our numbers very carefully every day. We are concerned about peaks in other states. “The Blue Jays are not allowed to play at Rogers Center in Toronto due to their frequent trips back and forth from the United States amid the COVID-19 crisis. The franchise explored playing home games at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, but Toronto was again turned down due to the team’s frequent travel.
Toronto won’t be able to use the home locker room at Camden Yards, although that might not be the only issue, according to Athletic’s Dan Connolly and Ken Rosenthal. The Blue Jays would also not be able to use the visiting clubhouse, which would require ‘a makeshift clubhouse’, per Connolly and Rosenthal.
The Blue Jays will be on their way to their first five games of 2020. They are expected to host their first home game on July 29, although the location of the battle against Washington is still pending.
