Jr. Jays Saturdays
Summer in Toronto means a ball game has to be involved at least once. And with the Jr. Jays program, you can bring the family to any Saturday home game to take in the action while participating in kid-friendly activities while you get to relax and enjoy the action. Kids can win prizes, or even be selected for stadium activities like Jr. Jay Announcer for the bottom half of an inning, or a moment of fame up on the video board, and for fans 14 ages and older, they can run around the bases after the game.
