As a Blue Jays fan and a sports fan in general, this kind of crap really gets under my skin.
During Tuesday’s American League Wildcard playoff game in Toronto between the Blue Jays and Baltimore Orioles, one idiotic fan thought it would be funny to throw a beer can at Baltimore outfielder Hyun Soo Kim while he attempted to catch a fly ball. Fortunately, the can missed.
Toronto fans already have a reputation around baseball as being too rumbustious in the stands. Especially after last year’s American League Division Series game 5 against Texas, when circumstances in the 7th inning led to several fans throwing debris on the field. Check out both circumstances below.
It’s really sad that a small percentage of idiotic fans can make the well-behaved majority of fans look so bad because of their antics. Just stupidity.
Luckily for the Jays, it didn’t come back to bite them, thanks to Edwin Encarnacion in extra innings! A 3-run walkoff homerun! Off to Texas.
