For the first time since March, there was a Blue Jays game on TV yesterday.
It was the Blue Jays vs the Blue Jays, as Team Bo took on Team Grichuk in an intrasquad scrimmage, but the game was televised on Sportsnet with live commentary, multiple cameras, and a score bug that made it feel real. It was an incredibly refreshing sight to behold.
