Blue Jays no longer selling beer cans in 500 level

If you're heading to the Blue Jays game at the Rogers Centre tonight, you might be in for a surprise when you try to grab a beer in the 500 level. That's because you won't be able to buy beer cans; the only beer available to you will be served in plastic cups.

This move comes after a group of rowdy fans launched beer cans onto the field during last week's emotional game 5 against the Texas Rangers. Along with the raining beer cans, police arrested and charged 33-year-old Albert Grummitt for mischief, reports the Canadian Press, after a baby in the 100 level was hit with beer spray from a falling can.

While we beat the Rangers 6-3 (largely thanks to Jose Bautista's epic home run and subsequent bat flip), we showed the world that Torontonians can't have nice things, such as beer cans, at baseball games.

The Jays take on the Kansas City Royals tonight at 8:07 in game 3 of the ALCS. If you get frustrated later, perhaps try booing instead of throwing away perfectly good, and expensive, beer.

What do you think of the move to ban beer cans in the 500 level? Let us know in the comments.
