    Rogers Centre seats getting a makeover for Blue Jays games

    The Rogers Centre will be looking a little different this season once the Toronto Blue Jays get things going in the coming weeks. Opening Day is just 10 days away, though the Blue Jays get a little extra leeway with their first three series of the year coming on the road. The Rogers Centre has unveiled a series of new changes to the ballpark this season: a series of standing-room-only social spaces, elevated bullpens, and new field dimensions. The renovation began on October 14, just days after the Jays' crushing loss to the Seattle Mariners in the American League Wild Card Series, where the PCL construction team began by tearing out 17,000 seats from the 500 level of the stadium.
