The Toronto Blue Jays will once again be playing their home games in front of a jam-packed ballpark.

The team announced it'll be opening Sahlen Field to 100% capacity in time for Thursday's homestand opener against the Baltimore Orioles.

"In accordance with New York State Department of Health guidelines announced June 15, all seating sections are available to all fans regardless of vaccination status," the team announced. "Fans no longer need to show proof of vaccination to enter Sahlen Field and physical distancing and face covering requirements have been eased."

The Blue Jays have been playing in Buffalo since the beginning of June and were previously permitted to allow 80% capacity into the stadium.

It remains unclear when the team will be permitted to return to Toronto to play games at Rogers Centre.

“Late July would be incredible,” general manager Ross Atkins said Sunday. “But a lot to pull off for that to happen and not completely in our control.”

The Canadian government announced the easing of travel restrictions for fully vaccinated travelers starting next month. Anyone who is fully vaccinated will not have to adhere to the country's 14-day quarantine rules as of July 5.
