MLB commissioner Rob Manfred confident no more can-throwing in Toronto

OK, so one (probably drunk) guy throws a can on the field. They identify and arrest him. Why do need to do anything else?

Toronto has been “extremely cooperative and I think is as committed as we are to make sure that we don’t have another incident like that,” Manfred said. The Blue Jays have said they are planning tougher security measures and alcohol policies at their stadium.

MLB announces 2017 regular season schedule

The Atlanta Braves will open SunTrust Field, their $1.1 billion home in suburban Cobb County, on April 14, 2017 against the San Diego Padres, Major League Baseball announced on Wednesday.

The 2017 season will begin for the second consecutive year with a Sunday tripleheader, as the New York Yankees will play at the Tampa Bay Rays, and the Arizona Diamondbacks will play host to the San Francisco Giants on April 2. A third game, yet to be announced, will be moved to the Sunday night slot.

The final day of the regular season will be Sunday, Oct. 1. Should the 2017 postseason schedule mirror those of recent years, that would place Game 1 of the World Series on Oct. 24, with a possible Game 7 on Nov. 1.

Rays will also host the Athletics in a scheduled doubleheader June 10!
