Anecdotally, that sounds about right from my experience too. The Jays have had a pretty small but loyal fanbase, but recent events have made people more excited about the Jays that they've been in years. Baseball in general has been experiencing a bit of a comeback in Canada from what I've seen.

Basketball is still pretty niche, especially the NBA. March Madness is usually bigger from what I've seen.
