Recently we have partnered with Baseball Canada and their newly formed Challenger Division. In order to raise awareness and create excitement for this excellent new Division they have arranged a Blue Jays Day on June 8th where the price of the tickets are lowered to watch the Jays take on the Rangers on June 8th at 1:00pm.
