    Exploring Toronto took us a day with heaps of modern buildings and architectural marvels to see. An engineer would be very fascinated to see the city I suppose. We were amused by the sport mad Canadians in their fave team colours, as there were about three competitions going on that day we first arrived at the city.

    We walked everywhere, visited the Rogers Centre, the metro Convention Centre, of course the CN Tower, a small park with a few flowers and shrubs, etc. As it was April, spring was just beginning to sow its colourful harvest so a lot of the area was still dry particularly the roadsides from the airport going to Toronto.

    Going to a baseball game

    Baseball game in the Skydome / Rogers Centre


    One thing you should try to do is go to a baseball game. The first game I actually saw from the top of the CN tower. Hahaha, I was so frustrated looking down seeing the game going on, and wondering why I didn't have any tickets to the game! I like baseball and seeing them playing the game made me eager to go to a real baseball game myself one day.
    And in May 2002 I finally got a chance to go to my first "major" baseball game, and it was great! Our friends got free tickets for the game, and invited us to join them... and of course I didn't say no :-)) I love baseball, and going to a 'real' game was something I always wanted to do.
    Please take a look at the sport travel tips to see more photos of the game.

    Retractable Awe

    Skydome

    I don't care how many companies own this facility and how often they'll change its name - for me this will forever be the Skydome. When it opened in the late 80's we were all agog by the retractable roof, since that seemed to spice up the otherwise dull baseball games. The Skydome really found a place in the imaginations of all Torontonians in the early 90s (93 and 94) when the Blue Jays won back-to-back World Series pennants. It was the point at which baseball replaced the much beloved game of hockey as Toronto's pride and joy. Unfortunately the subsequent strike dealt a blow to the popularity of the game from which it has yet to recover. For this reason the Skydome is rarely filled for baseball games. Its a bit more fun to simply go down to the Skydome area, see if the roof is retracted or not and enjoy the views of the city from around the Dome.

    Home of the Toronto Bluejays baseball team, the Skydome is noteworthy for it retractable roof which allows the team to play their games whether there’s rain or sun. A hotel overlooks the field and in past years, fans have observed couples enjoying their own entertainments. Be sure to bring binoculars to be able to watch the game more closely.

    The Rogers Centre, formally known as the Sky Dome is home to the Toronto Blue Jays (baseball) and the Toronto Argonauts (football). It also hosts concerts, trade shows and conventions. The impressive stadium is also famous for its retractable roof.

    It's possible to take a guided tour of the stadium. However, while I was in Toronto, the Blue Jays were at home. I opted to see them play an afternoon baseball game against the Texas Rangers. All I remember was that it was a very hot day and Toronto won.

    This is the home of the Toronto Blue Jays. I also believe that it is home to a CFL team as well. It was built after the last time I have been to Toronto. But I hear it is a state of the art facility. I would love to attend a game here, especially when the Yankees are in town.

    If you're in town, why not take in a Jays game. It's fairly inexpensive (compared to another pro sport that is hugely popular in this city), and it's a lot of fun. Baseball always makes me think of little kids and their heros, which is a nice thing. The Skydome is a good place to watch a game cuz you're gonna get decent seats for a good price. You can get really cheap seats if you like, but you're gonna be in the nosebleed section. Sure you're gonna pay $6 for a hotdog and probably another $8 for a small beer, but you don't have to worry about rain delays (they keep the roof closed on days when it's supposed to rain).

    Retractable Roof Stadium offers more than baseball

    by noidiotsplease Updated Apr 18, 2013

    Toronto's Skydome

    In the shadow of the CN Tower, Toronto's Skydome has a retractable roof , which allows it to serve as either a domed or open-air stadium depending on weather conditions. It is the home to the Toronto Blue Jays of Major League Baseball.

    Offering more than sports viewing, the Skydome also has a built-in hotel with rooms that overlook the field. In fact, one time baseball fans were quite distracted from the game as two people decided to engage in sexual activity in their room -- and in plain view of thousands!

    The Skydome also boasts a restaurant with giant picture windows that overlook the field.

    The Skydome is one of the most enormous satdiums to watch baseball! Home of the American Leauge Toronto Blue Jays!
    If anything you'll really appreciate the incredible landscape of the structure! The structure of the stadium stands firm and strong, and being that is so enormous symbolizes 'Power'

    See a baseball game at the SkyDome.
    This is the first multi-use stadium to have a retractable roof. It is the home of the Toronto Bllue Jays baseball team. If there isn't a game going on they offer behind the scenes tours of the facility and the locker rooms, etc.

    If you have the chance, go and see a baseball-game. It is very interesting, even if you don't know any rules.
    It's a great atmosphere in the stadium. Go and enjoy it!

    Rogers Centre is noted for being the first stadium to have a fully-retractable motorized roof, as well as a 348-room hotel attached to it, with 70 rooms overlooking the field. It is also the most recent North American major-league stadium built to accommodate both football and baseball, although some of the newer baseball parks have been known to host the occasional college football game. While it is primarily a sports venue, Rogers Centre also hosts other large-scale events such as conventions, trade fairs, and concerts.

    Rogers Center (Formerly Toronto Skydome) situated close to Lake Ontario and the CN Tower, the world's first multi-purpose retractable domed stadium, and now a defining part of the Toronto skyline.Home to the Toronto Blue Jays since the 1989 season, as well as the Argonaut Canadian Football League squad, this $500-million-plus architectural marvel (formerly known as SkyDome) is the first stadium to have a fully retractable roof. Seating more than 50,000 for baseball, the stadium boasts the world's largest JumboTron scoreboard, a 346-room hotel with some suites facing the field, and a Hard Rock Cafe with field-view seating. Guided tours operate daily depending on the event schedule: Entrance Fee is CAD12.50.

    Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Game
    If you are there during baseball season head to a Blue Jays game. The Skydome is a sight to see, even for non-baseball fans. Buy mid-price/cheap tickets and then move to better seats as the game goes on.
