The Toronto Blue Jays have had themselves quite the season.
Exactly one year after the most chaotic day in franchise history, the Blue Jays took a far more comfortable route to 2022-23 MLB playoffs – securing home field in the Wild Card with a dominant win over the Baltimore Orioles.
Only that isn’t why the Blue Jays found themselves trending on social media Tuesday.
Rather, the reason why Toronto found itself in the headlines was a particularly provocative viral video involving some fans:

The incident was so stunning that fans flocked to Twitter to offer their thoughts on what transpired.
Reactions were by and large what you would expect:

This has been a wild year in the sport of baseball. Between fans getting intimate in the stands both at American games and international ones, Aaron Judge’s wife’s unique way of staying in the headlines and Kate Upton being Kate Upton – it has been one thing after another.
In some ways, this most recent incident is just par for the course.
But all the fun off-the-field stuff ends this week. With the MLB playoffs rapidly approaching, focus will now shift from dumb extracurricular stuff to actual, quality play.

A World Series berth being on the line is sobering for players and fans alike.
Will the Blue Jays be able to shock the world, prevail in the Wild Card and then go on to win the whole thing?
Time will tell.
