Major League Baseball has chosen to unveil its 2020 calendar on MLB Network with MLB Tonight: Camping World® planned outing. For some reason, this show skipped the Blue Jays (with others) schedules even though they had talked a lot. This left us trying to piece together the schedule for other teams’ releases until the Blue Jays finally made their own announcement.
Blue Jays baseball is scheduled to return at 6:40 p.m. July 24 against the Rays at Tropicana Field.
We still don’t know or those games will take place, but the Blue Jays will open their home schedule on July 29 against the Washington Nationals in the second half of a home game. The Jays then host the Phillies and then the Marlins, which means the first American League team to visit will be the Rays the weekend of August 14.
If they’re playing in Toronto, the only place to see live baseball games will likely be in one of the field view suites at the Toronto Marriott City Center Hotel, which is attached to the Rogers Center. Although rooms are available for booking, it is unclear if fans will actually be allowed to occupy them as the Blue Jays and visiting staff must be installed there.
The Blue Jays will not be playing on August 3, but will be at home to welcome the Yankees during Labor Day. The 2020 regular season will conclude with a seven-game home game against the Yankees and the Orioles. In fact, the Blue Jays will play their full 10-game schedule against the Yankees in September.
September 27 is the last day of the regular season, and all games, including the Baltimore-Toronto tilt, are scheduled to begin at approximately 3:00 p.m. ET.
All home games Monday through Saturday are scheduled to start at 6:37 p.m. Sunday games at 3:07 p.m. The only exception is the game of Monday August 31 against Baltimore, when the first pitch is at 2:07 p.m. Toronto will not have a day off between August 21 and September 9, playing 20 games in 20 days.
