      I always thought that was a good idea. I wish more stadiums did that.

          Was actually coming to look for a Rogers Centre thread, as I'll be in Toronto for a wedding in August and the Angels are in town. Does anyone have a favorite section, or places to avoid? Not to speak poorly of the park, but it does have somewhat of a Shea vibe - I imagine sightlines would be similar.

            It does have a little Shea vibe from the stadpoint that it was the last dual purpose stadium built. At the time 1989 the CFL was bigger than it is now. Since then NFL rosters have gone from 45 to 53 and the league went from 28 to 32 teams. Thats 330 guys who would have been in the CFL.

            There was talk that the Argos would leave for their own stadium on the University of Toronto campus, that would have allowed them to renovate Rogers to be baseball only and improve the sidelines.

            And Guitar punk they will not turn around and build a 32K stadium with a view. Canada winters are brutal so it has to be a dome and this is a team that once drew 4 million fans. They won't get to the level but they aren't the Marlins.

              I really love the 200 level. I find that the 100 level is alright, but the grade of seating isn't the best..of course, I've only sat there once.

              Actually sat in the outfield 200 level right by the right-field foul pole.. I loved those seats. However, those sections aren't always filled, but you can see the view here:


              500 level is really really up there, so yeah...baselines in the 200 level, i would look into

                  Nope. The Blue Jays don't play there anymore, they moved to Hamilton, Ontario. Remember?

                    Yeah, and outdoor park in hamilton. They can play there all year because of all the waste hamilton has formed over the years creates a protective bubble around the city. It has a good view of the skyline, and the bridge but you can only see over the right field bleachers one day in may, and one day in september, all of the other days are too hazy.
                    Definately a pitchers park too. line shots to the gap = caught by the SS or 2B

                      Roger's center is an aberration that causes disrespect over all Canada including its newest province, Nunavut. They should re-build Exhibition Stadium right this very minute. Also they should bring back Cito Gaston or Manny Acta or whoever was the first manager and have him be the manager again.

                          I was just getting out of my igloo yesterday, when I saw over the horizon, my good friend (and closest neighbour), Nantuck. I drove over to see him with my team of sled dogs, upon which, we remarked at the absurdity of a covered stadium in our climate. Ridiculous, we snorted, while chewing the whale fat.

                            how come last week when the Yankees were there, though, it looked like there was a roof on the stadium?

                            and what did they do with the sky dome? did they make the whole building into a hotel?

                              They demolished the Sky Dome and replaced it with a brand new facility which they called the Roger's center.
