Jays move home series to Philadelphia to avoid G20 security woes


The Toronto Blue Jays have announced that they've moved a home series against the Phillies... to Philadelphia.

Games that were scheduled for June 25th, 26th and 27th at Rogers Centre have been moved to Philadelphia to avoid potential security problems and general chaos and disruption associated with the G20 summit meetings being held at the nearby Metro Toronto Convention Centre during that time.

It's too bad, because this series was supposed to mark the much anticipated return of ex-Jay Roy "Doc" Halladay to Toronto.
