Sports Illustrated reports: Baseball's biggest mystery has been solved and the Toronto beer thrower is Ken Pagan, a journalist who most recently worked at PostMedia. Even better, The Toronto Sun newspaper, owned by PostMedia, was offering a $1,000 award to anyone who identified the beer tosser. Shout out to the Twitter sleuths who solved this case.

Here's the video of the beer can narrowly missing Kim.

Late Wednesday, a Postmedia source confirmed to the Star that the man in the photo is Ken Pagan, a Postmedia employee.

In an email to the Star, Phyllise Gelfand, vice-president of communications at Postmedia, confirmed Pagan is an employee and added: “We are conducting an internal investigation but have reached no conclusions at this time.”

Multiple attempts by the Star to reach Ken Pagan were unsuccessful; however, the Toronto Sun — itself owned by Postmedia — reported that Pagan denied being the culprit, noting that he'd been drinking from a plastic cup on Tuesday. Pagan, Postmedia reported, had spoken with Toronto police Wednesday night and made arrangements to report to police but had not yet been charged.

Meaghan Gray, a spokesperson for the Toronto Police Service, did not confirm the suspect’s identity, but said the alleged beer-hurler would face general mischief charges related to the incident.

Interestingly, the Sun previously announced a $1,000 reward for any leads as to the identity of the beer-slinger, according to Metro News.

The paper also reported that an anonymous co-worker of Pagan’s said the alleged perp hurried out of his Hamilton, Ontario office soon after Toronto Police published the photo.

Pagan, who has not yet been charged, has suggested that the police may have the wrong man. But at the advice of his attorney, he is waiting to release a full statement.

"I was drinking out of a cup," he told the Sun. "I'd love to tell you what happened and my story ... but I can't say anything."
