TORONTO – In the past, Toronto Blue Jays fans have been called wild and unruly — more than two decades without playoff ball can do that.

Running on the field scaling the outfield walls, vomiting in the stands, and fisticuffs all come to mind. (Yes, this all happened in one season in 2013.)

But with this year’s team on the cusp of a post-season berth, the first since 1993, one might expect a more gracious or perhaps cordial crowd.

That wasn’t the case at Friday night’s game against the Boston Red Sox when a fan managed to rip a urinal from a bathroom wall around the sixth inning, causing water to flood the concourse level.

Blue Jays spokesperson Jay Stenhouse confirmed the Herculean feat did take place but could not elaborate on where exactly it happened.

It didn’t take long though for fans to chime in as several witnesses in attendance were shocked over the incident.

According to the Globe and Mail, water from the cracked pipe flooded the 500 Level concourse and made its way into the Jays’ 400 Level offices disabling an elevator car.

Meanwhile, the alleged perpetrator was apparently “half-dressed” during the incident and some on social media suggested he was asleep when conducting his business.

There’s no word yet on the cost of the damages or if the alleged urinal destroyer will be allowed back at future Blue Jays games.
