TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays are determined to modernize the Rogers Center.
Team President Mark Shapiro announced Thursday that the Blue Jays would undergo a major renovation of their downtown ballpark.
Shapiro says phase one, which involves replacing all seats in the 500-level, will be complete by next season.
Opened in 1989, Rogers Center is the seventh oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball.
Rogers Center is one of only three multi-purpose stadiums left in MLB, along with RingCentral Coliseum in Oakland and Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay.
Shapiro says the renovations will make Rogers Center more baseball-specific.
