My Dad loves baseball. I don’t know whether it’s something hearkening from his days in Jamaica or a burning desire to show patriotism in his later life as a Canadian, but he’s fiercely followed the progress of the Toronto Blue Jays for as long as I can remember.
There must’ve been a time where sports played a greater role in my life as well; I remember one birthday where I was thoroughly excited that I was going to a Jays game with my Dad—on the 100 Level of the SkyDome, no less… the good seats.
I know there’re likely several Torontonians out there still reeling from the Stanley Cup slipping through the Maple Leafs’ fingers for the 46th time—but never fear, baseball’s here!
Though we’re a city that loves its hockey, we often forget that we have a baseball team that’s been around almost as long as Mississauga’s been a city (seriously—look it up). When we think of baseball, anyone who’s old enough immediately thinks of the Toronto Blue Jays’ glory years—’92 and ’93—both where we last won Major League Baseball’s World Series in a stellar display, and the last time Toronto’s won an international title in any of its major league sports.
There’s a good chunk of Toronto that still has a lot of love for our Jays, World Series contenders or not—and for the nay-sayers who’re ready to throw in the towel when a season doesn’t go as stellar as we’d hope… it’s time for Toronto to give baseball another chance. We might not be New York with the ever-powerful Yankees (but come on—let’s also remember how much the US sinks into sports compared to their northern neighbours), but the dedication of the fans plays a huge role in the viability of a franchise (if Leafs fans were as die-hard as they are, I think the Leafs would’ve changed ownership—or worse — by now).
Can you imagine a Toronto skyline without the
SkyDome Rogers Centre? I think not!
So why not show a fan a little love this Father’s Day and take them out to the ball game? For a limited time, Buytopia’s offering a discount on 100-level seats for a Jays game against the Colorado Rockies which you can check out here: $55 for a Level 100 Infield Ticket to the Blue Jays vs Colorado Rockies on June 17th, June 18th, OR June 19th — a savings of $28 from their original price of $83!
So if you want to hit a sporting event where you can actually chat with your friends while enjoying an amazing view at a fraction of the regular cost (not to mention that it’s going to set you back a lot less than a Leafs or Raptors game would), you should think about taking yourself out to the ball game with some discount 100-level seats courtesy of Buytopia.
Who knows—that deep into the action, maybe you’ll go home with a souvenir! (Because Lord knows that catching a ball with seats in the 500-level is next to impossible!)
HYFR and YOLO,
[Disclaimer: In exchange for this post, I too get a set of Jays tickets as part of the Buytopia Inner Circle. And I would take my Dad, but he’s a weekend game kind of guy, and as shown above, the tickets range from Monday to Wednesday, so Sarah will be my stand-in. It’s okay. She’ll make sure to cheer 😊]
