Toronto police confident they have ID of man who threw beer

TORONTO (AP) - The man suspected of throwing a beer at Baltimore outfielder Hyun Soo Kim during the seventh inning of Tuesday night's AL wild card game has been charged with mischief.

Ken Pagan, 41, of Hamilton, was charged after surrendering at a downtown police detachment and is scheduled to appear in court in Toronto on November 24.

Pagan, in an email to The Canadian Press on Wednesday night, identified himself as the man in the police photo.

But in a report published by the Toronto Sun, which is owned by Postmedia, Pagan suggested police may be wrong.

Earlier today, the Blue Jays released a statement expressing "sincere apologies and regrets" to the Orioles and the league for what they called an "embarrassing incident". Baltimore Orioles' Hyun Soo Kim gets under a fly ball as a can falls past him during the seventh inning of an American League wild-card baseball game against the Toronto Blue Jays in Toronto, Tuesday, Oct. 4, 20.

"We are confident we have made a positive ID", Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu said Thursday. "I think that one of the reasons last night attracted so much attention is it's an unusual - rare may be a better word - event in one of our ballparks".

The Blue Jays said the safety of fans, staff, players and visiting teams was "paramount" and promised to bring in "heightened" security measures and alcohol rules for future games, though it did not provide details.

"I want to be really, really optimistic about it", Manfred said Wednesday before the NL wild card game. Canadians have a reputation for being polite but Blue Jay fans have increasingly earned a reputation for drunken, boorish behavior.

Streets Blocked After Alfred Olango Shooting Video Released
Multiple killings of black people by armed police have sparked protests in cities across the USA in recent months. Mr Olango, his right hand in his trouser pocket, moved side to side and backed up towards a white pick-up truck.

Toronto police detective Pat Alberga said security camera footage inside the stadium helped identify the suspect.

"It's tough when you have many people in the ballpark and one person does something that reflects poorly on all of them", he said.

"The police have been fair in dealing with us on this and so that's why he's here (at the police station) to co-operate as much as he can right now", said Smith.

Blue Jays spokesman Erik Grosman said the person who threw the beer can was not ejected from the stadium because the individual took off before police had a chance to make an arrest.

A Blue Jays fan also threw a drink at Orioles outfielder Nate McLouth during a game at Rogers Centre in May 2013.

NEW YORK - Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred remains hopeful the sport can play regular-season games in London for the first time in 2018. "I think we could make money with the undertaking". "Yell, cuss or scream", Jones said.

Kim made a catch on the play, but the Jays went on to win 5-2. A baby was narrowly missed.
