The Blue Jays spend their workout days at Bobby Mattick and move to the stadium on a full-time basis when Spring Training games begin.
Can fans attend workouts?
Normally, all workouts at Bobby Mattick are free and open to the public, but this year is an exception. The Blue Jays have started renovations at the complex and, as a result of the construction, the workouts will not be open to the public. Toronto hosts daily workouts at the complex from Feb. 14-22 before moving over to Dunedin Stadium, which is where all of the Grapefruit League games take place.
