The comeback kids have done it! The Toronto Blue Jays won a 3rd straight game against the Texas Rangers last night clinching their ALDS playoff series, and they did it at Rogers Centre in front of a frenzied and electrified crowd of fans.
But that excitement was also felt at sports bars across the city, Yonge-Dondas Square, and Nathan Phillips Square, now known as the Birds Nest.
At one point during the game, frustrated fans in the dome started throwing out beer cans on the field after the Rangers scored a run on a controversial error by Jays catcher Russell Martin. The hysteria prompted Toronto Mayor John Tory to remind the city of who we are, once the Jays claimed the win.
“Please celebrate in a responsible way. This is a great city, it’s a peaceful city. This is a great country and a peaceful country. We don’t do things that are kind of, what we see elsewhere. We’re people that know how to celebrate, know how to win and know how to lose with grace and with civility,” Mayor Tory told CP 24.
Toronto Police have arrested a man after a baby was hit by the spray of a thrown beer can at last night’s Blue Jays game. But celebrations afterward did not get ugly and Toronto stayed classy.
The celebrations continue after the 11am news on Zoomer Radio’s Goldhawk Fights Back, when Dale takes calls from Blue Jays fans along with Happy Gang Co-Host and baseball expert Neil Hedley!
