Official Announcement: Blue Jays Series on the Move

As we discussed yesterday here on PhoulBallz.com, due to a conflict with the G20 Summit, the interleague match up between the Phillies and Blue Jays was in jeopardy of being moved out of Toronto's Rogers Centre, most likely to Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park. The series, scheduled for late June, would have featured former Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay's return to his former home.

Today, Major League Baseball announced a firm decision had been made to move the series to Philadelphia. The switch will give the Phillies 3 additional games in their home park this season, however, the Phillies will not actually be the home team.

The series will be played as though the Blue Jays are the hosts. In the three-game set, slated for June 25-27, the Blue Jays will be the home team (batting last) and the designated hitter will be used (as is the case in interleague games played only at American League parks).

The June 25th game will be played at 7:05pm. The June 26th game is scheduled for 1:35pm. The time for the June 27th has yet to be determined.

There has been no official announcement regarding tickets for the games. However, it could likely involve Toronto ticket holders being allowed an opportunity to exchange their tickets for seats at Citizens Bank Park.

Initially, reports out of Toronto had the Blue Jays ironing out plans to cancel one of the weekend games, and instead scheduling a double header for another day, to avoid conflict and congestion. However, that concept never came to fruition and the Blue Jays and MLB decided to move all the games, instead.

Who is Your Favorite Willie 'Mays' Hayes?

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps. Another budding actor, Epps had previously worked with director David S. Ward, on the film The Program , and landed the role of Hayes, who had become a Hollywood action star over the off-season that occured between the two films. Epps' career portraying athletes rol

Phillies minor leaguer Burch to use health scare as fuel

Tyler Burch, image- MiLB.com I invite you to visit Patreon.com/PhoulBallz in order to support my work and get access to exclusive interviews plus early access to features and news such as this. A missed baseball season wasn't the only challenge facing righty pitcher Tyler Burch this summer.   With persistent symptoms that began prior to spring training it was ultimately discovered, after the 2020 season was shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic, that the 22-year-old had developed an autoimmune disease.   As symptoms that included dry mouth and frequent trips to the bathroom worsened, Burch's situation left his doctor puzzled.  And even the physician that conducted his team physical examination at the outset of spring training jokingly referenced diabetes, but did not take the possibility seriously.    The physical impacts subsided somewhat during spring training, as being more active and adhering to the team diet helped alleviate what he was experiencing.
