Yankees find a big league feel in minor league ballpark as Blue Jays series played in Dunedin


“I know Gio (Urshela) and Gleyber (Torres) didn’t see great and then in the outfield until it gets fully dark there’s some of that twilight because of the lower deck that kind of factors in a little bit.”


For the second straight season, the Blue Jays have been forced to find a place in the United States to play because of Canada’s restrictive COVID-19 travel policies.


After Monday night’s game, the drive out of town featured one bar open down the street and a downtown that had closed up hours before.


The live fans in the intimate park got an up-close look at Aaron Judge in the on-deck circle and could hear the pop of Kyle Higashioka’s glove as he caught Aroldis Chapman’s 99-mph fastball.


It sounds kind of cheesy, but you could put two major league teams in a municipal park somewhere and we’re gonna find a way to compete and make it work,” Taillon said.


For these two months that the big league club is playing in the quaint town nestled onto the Gulf Coast, the team has brought in four temporary banks of lights.
