The Blue Jays have seen their fair share of fans running across the field… but this is something else.

It’s believed that ashes were thrown on the field on Friday. Toronto Fire was called to the Rogers Centre at approximately 10 p.m., which was during the ninth inning of the Jays vs. Tigers game.

Toronto Fire Captain Adrian Ratushniak told Newstalk 1010 that the hazardous materials crew did an initial analysis on a grey, powdery substance that was on the turf and “didn’t find anything of a public hazard.”

Toronto Police are now conducting further tests on the substance.

Kat Downey, a licensed funeral director specializing in funeral preplanning, said she wouldn’t be surprised if it was just a lack of planning.

“People… know that they want to be cremated,  but when I ask what do they want done with the cremated remains, they’re usually not sure of that,” said Downey.

According to the Toronto Star, the man who sprinkled the ashes briefly spoke to security after the game and then chose to leave on his own.
