As a Blue Jays fan and lifelong Toronto resident, I would like to extend apologies to the Baltimore Orioles for the disgusting behaviour of what I trust was only a handful of Jays fans in the stands last night ("Toronto police ask Blue Jays fan who threw beer to 'turn yourself in,'" Oct. 5). Such action and verbal insult is an embarrassment to the vast majority of Canadians and Jays fans who appreciated a tremendous game on the part of both teams. Toronto is a tremendously diverse city in cultural and racial terms, celebrating that diversity with numerous cultural events every year. Please don't allow a few miscreants to colour your opinion of us. We look forward to another equally exciting rivalry next year without the bad behaviour.
