Every summer we say we are going to make it to a baseball game. Every summer by the time I get around to getting tickets all the accessible seating is sold out. My issue with the accessible seating is that they usually just allow one other person with a wheelchair user and that is boring!
We wanted to go to a game with a few friends and make a fun night day of it one Saturday afternoon. Someone told me out Sightlines restaurant and that seemed ideal. Sightlines is a buffet, fully licensed restaurant out in centre field so we decided to give it a try over Father’s Day weekend. We took the VIA train (first time with Shawn) to Union Station and it was a great experience for Shawn. VIA has their wheelchair seating in business class so it was a complimentary upgrade and one companion is free with a doctors note stating an attendant is required.
We were attending an afternoon game and got to Toronto just in time to get our seats, have lunch and drinks and wait for the game. It is pricey because you pay for the buffet and the ticket is extra. However, if you want to have an uncrowded and fun experience it is so worth it. You are served right at your table and the restaurant has it owns washrooms equipped with an accessible washroom. We are not crowd people so it was perfect for us.
Overall a great day and we would do it again in a heartbeat. Go Jays!
