The Blue Jays are one step closer to coming home. The Ontario government says the MLB team has been given the green light to play at the Rogers Centre. But Ottawa has the final say and has not yet confirmed whether it will approve the plan. Premier Doug Ford says he’s looking forward to the Toronto Blue Jays playing at Rogers Centre this season. Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries Lisa MacLeod told Ottawa’s TSN Radio 1200 on Thursday that the Blue Jays have clearance to play in Toronto and travel to the United States for road games during the COVID-19 pandemic. She said teams visiting Toronto will stay inside a quarantine bubble, which would include Rogers Centre and a hotel. MacLeod said the agreement will be rescinded if the protocols put in place are broken.
