MLB wants to ban beer cans from the Rogers Centre

As the Toronto Police continue to investigate the beer throwing incident at Tuesday night's wild card game, Major League Baseball wants the Blue Jays to ban beer cans from the Rogers Centre.

As the Associated Press reports, a Blue Jays spokesperson said banning beer cans at the ballpark is one option that's currently on the table.

"I don't think there is another ballpark where beer is served in cans," said MLB commissioner Rob Manfred in discussing this heavily scrutinized rare beer-throwing event.

This isn't the first time Jays fans have thrown beer into the stadium. Last year, for instance, the Rogers Centre stopped selling beer cans in the 500 level after spray from a falling can hit a baby during the ALDS against the Texas Rangers.

Let's hope we keep calm, cool and collected as we head into this year's Division Series.
