During Tuesday night’s American League wild-card game, a Toronto Blue Jays fan threw a beer can and almost hit Orioles outfielder Hyun Soo Kim at the Rogers Centre. The Blue Jays apologized to the Major League Baseball and the Baltimore Orioles.

The team released a statement referring to the incident on Wednesday, “On the heels of one of the most competitive and exhilarating baseball games in our club’s history, it is extremely unfortunate that the irresponsible actions of one individual would detract from the game on the field and tarnish an otherwise memorable night.”

“We’ve also talked to the Blue Jays about the policies with respect to the serving of alcohol,” Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred stated. “No cans, those sorts of things, to make sure that we have as positive an environment going forward as possible.”

Because of this incident the team will “enact heightened security measures and alcohol policies that will ensure the fan experience and safety of everybody involved.”

According to the Blue Jays, the team is helping authorities to identify the fan involved in the incident during the seventh inning of the Blue Jays’ eventual 5-2 victory against the Orioles. They also said that the “individual responsible is not welcome back to the stadium.”

Toronto police tweeted asking the person responsible for the shameful incident to turn himself in. According to Toronto detective Pat Alberga they have video footage showing the suspect.

Orioles’ center fielder Adam Jones and manager Buck Showalter showed their disapproval”. Someone threw a beer down at my player,” Jones said. “That’s about as pathetic as it gets between the lines. You don’t do that. I don’t care how passionate you think you are. Yell, cuss, scream, tell us we’re horrible. We get that. We’re the opposition. We completely understand that. To throw something at a player, that’s as pathetic as it gets.”

“Something like that should never happen. It’s the first time for me and hopefully the last,” Kim stated.

But this is not the first time an incident like this happens, in May 2013, a Toronto fan threw a drink at Nate McLouth, Orioles outfielder at the Rogers Centre during a game.
