About the Rogers Centre: 

Once known as the SkyDome, Rogers Centre has been home to the Blue Jays since 1989. The first major league ballpark to feature a functioning retractable roof, Rogers Centre also has several other unique features, such as a 33 x 110 ft. LED video board and a hotel with views of the ball field. The surface of the playing field is artificial turf, which makes it durable enough that it can host football or soccer games. The Blue Jays have played in two World Series at Rogers Centre, in 1992 and 1993, but have not hosted a playoff game since.
