Toronto Blue Jays wish to stay east, not coming to Omaha
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - While many fans on social media have been pushing for The Toronto Blue Jays to come to Omaha and play at the home of the Creighton Bluejays, it doesn’t appear that the team is interested.
The Toronto Blue Jays are still searching for a home ballpark after being denied permission to play their home games in Canada and in Pittsburgh.
MECA, which oversees TD Ameritrade Park, sent a statement to WOWT from their president and CEO Roger Dixon:
“I spoke with the league office and Toronto is wanting to stay in the east. That being said we are a viable option if they need us.”
Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert made a similar comment during a press conference Thursday afternoon.
