Game 23 - Toronto Blue Jays

We said goodbye to Jason and boarded him on a bus towards New York as we pointed the RV towards Niagara Falls. We planned to spend one night on the Canadian side, relax a bit, and check out the water falls. Oh, and let my Mom get her hair done. She kept asking about getting her hair done.

This was our first time at Niagara Falls, and it was pretty cool. Our hotel was located right across the street, and we could see the falls from the pool on the roof.

We checked out early the next morning and headed for Toronto, which was only an hour and a half drive. I wasn't expecting much from the Rogers Centre (Old SkyDome), but we were really impressed. Rogers Communications purchased the building for $25 million, or 4% of the original construction cost, in 2005 and made significant improvements to the 100 level concourses and several suites. The stadium also boasted some of the best food options we've seen on the trip. Yes, the playing surface is still astro turf, but everything else looked new. I also caught my first foul ball for my nephew, Sam Jones off the bat of Brett Lawrie in the fifth inning.

The weather was beautiful, in the high 80's, and we all enjoyed the afternoon watching Pujols and Rasmus go at it again. 

Pros: Food selection, open 100 level concourse, hotel in the outfield.
Cons: Exterior is sterile, no cell phone coverage, astro turf.
