BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Just two days after announcing that they'll be playing in Buffalo, the Toronto Blue Jays have confirmed their first true "home" game at Sahlen Field.

In a tweet with an updated schedule, the team confirmed that it will play in Philadelphia from 7/31 to 8/2. The first team to visit the Blue Jays at Sahlen Field will be the Miami Marlins.

Both the Blue Jays and the Buffalo Bisons were open about acknowledging several infrastructural changes to facilitate social distancing for the players and meet MLB standards. This includes upgraded lighting for night games and additional space in the dugout, clubhouse, and bullpen.

After their opening series with the Tampa Rays, the Toronto Blue Jays are 1-2 on the year. Home stands for the Jays in Buffalo in August include the Rays, the Baltimore Orioles, and the Boston Red Sox.
