Red Sox Eject, Ban Fan Who Allegedly Used Racial Slur

Damon Campbell | 09 May, 2017, 00:16

That's two Red Sox fans being banned from Fenway Park in the past week as a result of exchanging racial slurs. "There is no place for racial epithets at Fenway Park, in baseball, or in our society", the statement continues.

The team said that the incident had occurred during Tuesday's game, that the fan had been escorted from the stadium and that the matter had been turned over to the Boston police to see if further action was warranted.

The Cleveland star also praised Red Sox players like Mookie Betts, who urged fans on Twitter to applaud Jones Tuesday night, for supporting an opposing player. The man reportedly denied using the phrase. The report states a Red Sox fan wearing a team hat and T-shirt uttered a racial slur to describe the woman's rendition of the anthem.

"I thought that surely I'd misheard him", Hennick wrote, saying he asked the man to repeat himself.

"I'm glad the Sox are encouraging fans to come forward", said Hennick, a freelance journalist who has written essays on raising a biracial son for Yahoo and Ebony. When told that kind of language was not acceptable, the man reportedly said to Hennick, "Why not?" Security moved Hennick and his family to better seats, then asked Hennick to come to the concourse to identify the fan and tell them what he heard. "It's a real, real longer conversation, but if we can keep the conversation going, I think it helps".

Additionally, Orioles outfielder Adam Jones was the subject of racist taunts from some fans at Fenway Park on Monday.

Penguins chase Holtby, beat Capitals to take 2-0 series lead
Holtby came into the postseason with the best save percentage ever-.938-but he hasn't had that kind of success this spring. The Penguins are obviously in an ideal position up 2 games to 0, yet it's still somewhat of a precarious one to be in.

Anyone following baseball recently and/or not living beneath a rock has likely caught wind of the ongoing feud between the Red Sox and the Orioles.

Nothing Sam Holbrook could say would ease the Baltimore Orioles' hard feelings, but if he just owned up to making a mistake, they'd at least have a little understanding. "Thankfully, we didn't have any more problems for the rest of the game".

Boston won 4-2 here at Fenway Park. "Jones was clearly competing in the game".

With the Adam Jones situation, I don't know who said it or what happened or the whole community in Boston or whatever the case may be. Again, the Red Sox responded swiftly. "(The call was) to just basically address the last two weeks and to say enough is enough", Boston manager John Farrell said.

Longtime competitors in the AL East, the rivalry between Boston and Baltimore has never attracted the attention or animosity of a Red Sox-Yankees matchup. "It's 2017 and we're still kind of dealing with that, especially with how integrated everything is".
