It's been almost a year since the team purchased the stadium known as SkyDome, renamed it Rogers Centre, and then installed a new playing surface and a video display system, featuring out-of-town scoreboards built into the outfield wall.
Toronto fans responded to the changes by clicking through the turnstiles more frequently last summer. The Jays drew almost 25,000 people per game to their new-look ballpark, and the team topped the two-million mark in season attendance for the first time since 1999.
Blue Jays president Paul Godfrey said taking control of the stadium led to a "dramatic improvement" in the team's relationship with fans.
