The Toronto Blue Jays call Dunedin’s TD Ballpark home for their pre-game season. For more than four decades the Blue Jays are the only Major League franchise to have never changed where they play their Spring Training baseball, and for good reason! The stadium recently went through a major renovation in 2019 that boasts a capacity of 8,500, a boardwalk that wraps around the outfield to allow for 360-degree access around the stadium, and a kid’s zone! Sounds like fun for the whole family! Despite its quaint charm and residential feel, Sports Illustrated has ranked this field as one of the top five places to watch a Spring Training game.
