1. Tom Cheek Memorial Plaque
Remember longtime Blue Jays announcer Tom Cheek by taking a moment to view the plaque dedicated to him behind home plate. The plaque honors the “Voice of the Blue Jays” and is a must-see for die-hard fans.
2. Chad the Beer Guy
Don’t miss Chad the Beer Guy during your trip to spring training. Chad is an institution at Blue Jays spring training games and has been hawking beers at the ballpark for 17 years. He also sings “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” during the 7th inning stretch, so join in and sing with him.
The best place to be to get an autograph from your favorite Blue Jay is down the right field line close to the team’s clubhouse. Those of you looking to get autographs from a visiting player will want to catch them in the fenced in area across from their bullpen. You can also get autographs from Blue Jays players on their way from the clubhouse to the parking lot after the game.
4. Blue Jays Legends Banners
Take a walk around the concourse to see all the banners celebrating the best players in team history. The banners are a can’t-miss for any longtime Jays fan, so enjoy them during your trip to spring training.
5. Dunedin Blue Jays in the Majors Display
Dunedin Stadium is also the home of the Blue Jays Class A-Advanced affiliate, and as a result, you’ll see a display dedicated to all of the former Dunedin Blue Jays who made it to the majors. Check out the exhibit and see all the players who have come through the Jays system over the years.
6. Blue Jays Practices
The Cecil P. Engelbert Recreation Complex is the home of the Blue Jays practices before Grapefruit League play starts and is located three and a half miles from Dunedin Stadium at 1700 Solon Ave. The complex features five fields and practices typically start around 10 am. Once games begin, you can catch the Blue Jays major leaguers practicing at Dunedin Stadium before the game.
7. Jays Shop
Stop by one of the two Jays Shops at the ballpark to pick up a souvenir from your trip to spring training. You’ll find a variety of Blue Jays merchandise at both stores including caps, jerseys, bobbleheads, and more.
