The dome was open at this game. You can see the bottom portion of the CN Tower beyond right field. It looms over the stadium when the dome is open.





Personal Notes: Very nice ballpark. The dome was open this game. I sat on the third base side towards the left field. The CN Tower loomed over the right field. There's a hotel right in the stadium. That's pretty cool. Plenty of food choices and plenty of vendors strolling through the stands.

There was a huge jumbotron that provided instant replays. It had the clearest picture I've seen on those type jumbotrons.

All players were announced.

The ushers tried to limit people movement during play by disallowing entry into the section until play had stopped. It's a great idea, but it wasn't all that successful.

The Blue Jays bombarded the Yankees 16 - 3 the night I went. There were plenty of Yankee fans in the crowd. They were easy to identify. They were the loud, boisterous ones supporting their team.



This was taken later on in the evening. I believe the windows to the left, right and above the scoreboard are windows into the hotel rooms. Underneath the scoreboard is the Hard Rock Cafe located in the Stadium.
