Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada

There are 30 teams in Major League Baseball. Only one hails from Canada. The Toronto Blue Jays had a dismal record of 54-107 during their 1977 inaugural season. They went on to win back-to-back World Series championships in 1992 and 1993. In 1989, the team moved into the SkyDome in central downtown. The stadium was heralded as the first with a fully retractable motorized roof. On opening day, rain soaked about 50,000 fans. In 2000, Toronto-based media conglomerate Rogers Communications purchased the Blue Jays. Four years later, they acquired the stadium and renamed it Rogers Centre. Yet most Torontonians still prefer SkyDome. This view is from Rod Robbie Bridge, named after the stadium’s architect.
