Toronto Blue Jays Stadium - The Rogers Centre
The experience of watching a game from the Toronto Blue Jays stadium, The Rogers Centre, is an experience like non-other in baseball. It's like going to the Grand Canyon, you can explain the experience to someone, but never really get a taste of what it's like until you've experienced it for yourself in person. Not only does it have a unique retractable roof, but its neighbor, the CN Tower is the tallest free-standing structure in the Western Hemisphere and can be seen during game when the roof is open. See the photos below.
The Rogers Centre, formerly known as the Skydome, was the first-ever retractable domed stadium. It may have never happened if not for the CFL's championship game, the Grey Cup, being played in a torrential rainstorm in an outdoor stadium with no cover for the fans and seen by the largest TV audience in Canada. That game came to be known as The Rain Bowl.
The next door neighbor to the Toronto Blue Jays stadium is the CN Tower which stand 1815.4 ft. tall. You can also watch the Edgewalkers (shown in the photo above) who are teathered and hang over the edge on top of the CN Tower. When the roof is open its a great view for the right field seats.
The Toronton Blue Jays stadium, the Rogers Centre, is located in the heart of downtown Toronto off of Front Street. It's also just a short walk from the harbor area. The Rogers Centre is also the only stadium that has an attached hotel, the Renaissance Downtown Toronto hotel.
