The Toronto Blue Jays are in the midst of their first homestand of the 2020 season at Sahlen Field, their new home away from home in Buffalo, New York. Jays fans from Buffalo, less than a two-hour drive from Toronto, and around New York showed up to take in the home opener Tuesday from the streets outside the stadium, on nearby rooftops and in local bars.

The Blue Jays are 1-1 so far in Buffalo. They welcome the Tampa Bay Rays to Sahlen Field on Friday for the first of a three-game series.
