Fans are being urged to get to the ballpark early on Monday, as there are new security rules in effect that will take it longer for them to pass through.

Toronto baseball fans are hoping the Jays can end their two-decade-long playoff drought this year.

If they make it, Blue Jays fans will have to be patient to see that long-awaited success, as the road to the playoffs is long in baseball.

After Sunday's ballgame, the Jays still have another 156 games to play this season.
