Ground Rules

Aisles & Aisle Etiquette

For the safety and enjoyment of other guests, Rogers Centre and the Toronto Blue Jays ask that you please do not sit or stand in the aisles. Aisles must be kept clear at all times.

While the game is on and ball is in play here at Rogers Centre, fans are asked to wait at the top of the seating section aisles until there is a break. This is not only for the safety of our fans due to the possibility of foul balls entering the stands, but also considered a courtesy to those who are seated.

Alcohol

The Toronto Blue Jays, Rogers Centre and ARAMARK are committed to promoting and ensuring responsible alcoholic beverage sales and use, as outlined by "T.E.A.M."

Techniques for Effective Alcohol Management

Training techniques from Smart Serve and T.E.A.M are combined with our goal of creating a safe, enjoyable and family-friendly environment where alcohol service and consumption is managed thoroughly.

Alcoholic beverages can only be purchased from authorized vendors once inside Rogers Centre and guests may not bring or leave the facility with any alcohol. All guests that appear to be 30 years of age or younger will be asked to provide proof of age for each transaction. Upon request for proof of age, guests must produce a valid form of photo identification.

Guests may have no more than two alcoholic beverages in their possession at any time. In-seat hawkers are restricted to serving only one (1) alcoholic beverage per guest. Alcohol service in all concession stands, luxury suites and TD Comfort Clubhouse will conclude at the end of the seventh inning. The Toronto Blue Jays, Rogers Centre, and its concessionaire (ARAMARK Sports and Entertainment) reserve the right to discontinue alcohol service at any time and to modify these rules at any time.

Guests found with unauthorized alcohol can have their ticket confiscated and be removed or denied entry from Rogers Centre without compensation.

They are: 100-Level - 142/141, 200-Level - 237/238, 500-Level - 520/521 (First 14 rows only).

The Toronto Blue Jays welcome certified service animals utilized by guests with disabilities into Rogers Centre.

Autographs

Players and coaches from both the Blue Jays and the visiting team do take time to sign autographs occasionally, but we kindly ask that fans respect their need to prepare for that day's game. Fans interested in obtaining an autograph from their favourite player are permitted at the bottom of the 100-Level aisles from the time the gates open until 45 minutes prior to game time, however, consideration should be given to guests possessing tickets for these areas. Guests must return to their ticketed seats after this period.

Fans wishing to obtain autographs from specific players should mail their request, including a self-addressed stamped envelope to the player's attention, to:

  • Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Club
  • Attn: Player/Coach's Name
  • 1 Blue Jays Way, Suite 3200
  • Toronto, ON M5V 1J1
