Team History[edit]

The Dunedin Blue Jays, formerly of the Florida State League and now in Low-A Southeast, are owned by their parent Toronto Blue Jays. They play their home games at TD Ballpark.

MLB's 2021 Minor League Reorganization lowered the D-Jays, and most of the FSL, one level.

For the first time since 2018, the D-Jays played at home June 1, 2021. They played 2019 at Clearwater's Jack Russell Memorial Stadium[1], didn't play in 2020 as the minor leagues were shut down, and played May 2021 at Clearwater's BayCare Ballpark and Tampa's George M. Steinbrenner Field while the Coronavirus pandemic kept the big club in Dunedin.
