TORONTO -- The Blue Jays will open their 2015 Grapefruit League season on March 3 with a home game against the Pirates. Toronto will play 32 games during Spring Training, with 15 of those taking place at Florida Auto Exchange Stadium in Dunedin, Fla.

All four American League East rivals will make at least one stop in Dunedin. The Orioles will play three games at Toronto's home Spring Training ballpark, the Rays will play twice, while the Yankees and Red Sox will each make one appearance.

The highlight of the Blue Jays' spring schedule will once again take place at the end of camp. Toronto will host the Reds for two exhibition games at Olympic Stadium in Montreal on April 3-4. It marks the second consecutive year the Blue Jays have finished their spring schedule with a series at the former home of the Expos.

Florida Auto Exchange Stadium has been the Blue Jays' Spring Training home since 1990. It is located in downtown Dunedin, and during the regular season, the facility is used to host games for the Class A Advanced Dunedin Blue Jays. All of Toronto's home spring games are scheduled for 1:07 p.m. ET, with the final game in Florida taking place on March 31.

The Blue Jays will open their regular season with a three-game series against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium from April 6-9. The home opener is scheduled for April 13 vs. Tampa Bay.

Tickets for the Grapefruit League season will officially go on sale on Thursday at 9 a.m. ET. Three-game flex packs, season tickets and group tickets will be on sale, while single-game tickets can be bought during a 36-hour window starting on Dec. 4, and then again starting Jan. 7.

To place orders, fans can visit bluejays.com or dunedinbluejays.com, or they can call 1-888-525-JAYS or direct at (727) 733-0429. For tickets to the two contests in Montreal, fans can visit evenko.ca, as those games are technically not part of the Blue Jays' spring home schedule.
