The Toronto Blue Jays had their home opener Friday night against the New York Yankees in front of a sold out Rogers Centre crowd.

Before the game the Jays honoured several Sochi Olympians and Paralympians. Famed now retired Jays pitcher Roy 'Doc' Halladay threw out the opening pitch.

Several politicians attended the game, including Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and mayoral candidate John Tory.
