"No Beer Cans For You", O Baseball Fans Of Canada!

(The Canadian Press)
After last week's seventh-inning beer can-throwing melee, the Blue Jays announced that brewskies will be poured into plastic cups at the elite seating levels of the Rogers Centre (mostly the '500 Level') from now on. Reportedly, a baby was hit by a flying can thrown from the luxury level. The crazy inning (which lasted almost an hour) started when Toronto catcher Russell Martin's throw hit Shin-Soo Choo's bat letting Rougned Odor score what was—at the time—the lead run. Of course, the Jays rallied and won the game, but the rowdy Canadian behavior ran counter to the national image of courtesy and politeness. So, plastic it is!
