No more beer cans at Rogers Centre for Jays playoff games

Oct 9 2016, 8:20 pm

All beer purchased at Rogers Centre will be poured into plastic cups for the remainder of the playoffs, the Toronto Blue Jays announced on Sunday.

Here’s the info from the press release:

Enhanced security and alcohol management measures will be in place to provide our fans, staff and players with a safe and enjoyable atmosphere. As such, all beer will be poured into cups throughout the stadium for the remainder of the Postseason.

This is the latest chapter from ‘beergate’, which has received a tremendous amount of attention ever since the Jays/Orioles wild card playoff game.

It’s a smart move by the organization to avoid another potentially embarrassing incident by taking precautions. The Blue Jays and MLB would have to be worried about a copycat doing something stupid as the games get more intense. Texas and Toronto will play Game 3 of their best-of-five series Sunday night at 7:30 pm ET.
