Rogers Centre no longer selling beer cans at Blue Jays playoff games
All beer will have to be poured into cups throughout the Jays's playoff run, team says
Fans attending Sunday's ALDS Game 3 tilt at the Rogers Centre between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Texas Rangers will not be able to buy cans of beer at the venue.
The Toronto Blue Jays Communications Department announced in a release that all beer will have to be poured into cups throughout the Jays's playoff run.
No decision has been made about canned beer sales next season, according to a spokesman for the Rogers Centre.
The announcement comes days after a fan was charged with mischief for allegedly throwing a beer can at a Baltimore Orioles player during a wild-card game last week.

During last year's playoffs, another Blue Jays fan was charged with mischief after throwing a beer can following a controversial call by an umpire during a game against the Rangers. Spray from the beer can hit a baby in the front row of the Rogers Centre, although the baby was unhurt.
Following that incident, the Blue Jays said they were reviewing beer can sales at the venue.
