It wasn't the ending they hoped for, but the fans are still in love with their team.
After the Toronto Blue Jays fell to the Kansas City Royals Friday night 4-3 in the ALCS game six, eliminating Toronto from the MLB post-season, the team's fans kept it classy and rallied immediately online to offer support to the players, using the #ComeTogether hashtag that has been the fan mantra:
Cy Young: ☑
AL East title: ☑
Best bat flip of all time: ☑
6 wins away from winning it all: ☑

Well, that was the most exciting season by any Toronto sports team in, like 20 years. Thanks #bluejays, you're awesome.— Jeff Lehman (@Mayor_Jeff) October 24, 2015
Jays' Russell Martin also had praise for teammate Jose Bautista, who tied up the score 3-3 on Friday with a two-run homer that kept the team in the game:
Russell Martin on Jose Bautista: “Unreal performance by Jose. He’s definitely the type of player who loves being in that moment" #BlueJays— Ben Nicholson-Smith (@bnicholsonsmith) October 24, 2015
And in spite of the disappointment the team must have felt, Josh Donaldson capped off the season by looking ahead:
"Hopefully next year we'll be able to finish this thing off."October 24, 2015
Guaranteed the fans will be right there with you every step of the way, Jays.
