The man was pronounced dead at the hospital, according to the Associated Press citing Toronto Police Services.
The players showed their condolences for the man.
"You automatically start thinking of life, you put everything in perspective. At the beginning of that inning, I'm fired up to get guys out and not that let that guy score and you see something like that, it puts everything in perspective. It didn't look good," White Sox reliever Jesse Crain said.
