Blue Jays at Sahlen Field
Transforming a Triple-A baseball facility into a Major League ballpark for the Toronto Blue Jays’ home away from home
Amid a global pandemic, BaAM led construction management and project management for the massive re-imagining of Buffalo’s Sahlen Field. This project began in 2020 when Canadian regulations prevented the Blue Jays from playing their season in Toronto.
- Renovations, overlay, and delivery of temporary infrastructure to convert the facility into a regulation MLB ballpark
- A full rebranding of the ballpark, recreating the feeling of a home stadium
- Upgrades to the playing surface, team dugouts, stadium lighting, weight rooms, batting cages, training facilities, and more
- Significant permanent design and construction solutions for the start of the 2021 MLB season
The work they did actually created that feeling of this is the Blue Jays’ home, which I think is really important to the psyche of the team and the ability of the team to perform, and an unbelievable accomplishment given the tight timeframe.
