Blue Jays fans are quickly earning themselves a reputation for being beer-tossing goons, and so the team is taking steps to prevent another scenario in which an opposing outfielder is nearly brained by a flying can.
The team announced that it will no longer serve beer in cans at remaining home playoff games, and will instead pour the suds into plastic cups. The Jays enacted a similar policy during last year’s playoffs, banning the sale of beer cans in the upper deck after a fan tossed a beer onto the field during Game 5 of the ALDS.
Opponents of the Blue Jays should not let this new policy give them a false sense of security, though. It is a well-known fact that all Canadian citizens are required to keep a severed moose leg on them at all times, and one of those could really do some damage if tossed at an opposing player.
