The batters’ eye is being put in place on Sunday January, 26th at TD Ballpark in Dunedin, FL spring training home of the Toronto Blue Jays.  The batters’ eye will have a four-stall rest room behind it for fans on the stadium’s walkway.  Also one can notice a number of trees that have been planted outside the stadium’s fence.  This is because Florida law requites that for every tree taken down two must be replanted on site.  This has caused trees to be planted on the outside of the half field practice field behind the stadium’s right centre field fence.

Will the Blue Jays first spring training game just four weeks away as of Monday construction continues on the main gate of TD Ballpark at Grant Field in Dunedin.
