$5 beer is coming to Toronto Blue Jays games

Gone are names like Bautista, Donaldson and Encarnacion and it'll likely be a long shot for the Toronto Blue Jays to make the playoffs.

So what are they doing to try and get you to come to the games this summer?

Two words: Cheap. Beer.

The Jays are introducing $5 cans of beer at the Rogers Centre for all home games in the 2019 season.

However, you'll probably end up waiting in a long line just to score one of those cheap brews.

The "Dugout Deals" will be available at three concessoon stands around the stadium, with one on each level.

In addition to the cheap beer, there will be a selection of "ballpark favourites" for $5 or less.

The cans of beer though, are the regular sized ones at 355-millilitres, not the 473-millilitre king cans that gererallly cost upwards of $12.

However, if you're a beer snob, you may not like the selection of Bud or Bud Light.

The Jays will also have loonie hot dog nights, selling hot dogs for $1 on six occasions over the course of the season.

The team will open their season at home on March 28th, against the Detroit Tigers.
