Fan ejected, banned from Fenway Park for using racial slur, team says

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.

Major League Baseball told the Red Sox and Orioles to stop their festering feud.

The organization issued a lifetime ban to a fan for using a slur while speaking to another fan attending a game Tuesday night with members of his interracial family.

When he stepped up for his first at-bat during Tuesday night's game, he was also given an extended applause from the Fenway crowd, with Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale stepping off the mound to allow the applause to continue.

The man denied using the slur when approached by Red Sox security.

Calvin Hennick, a former Boston Globe freelancer, told the paper that a white man made a racial slur to him in regards to the national anthem singer's rendition of the song.

"I know there's been a lot of back and forth between these two teams but you're costing the Orioles their pitcher, and that cannot only hurt the team for the game it can hurt them for a number of days because now you gotta use your bullpen and you gotta use multiple pitchers that you might not have used".

The incident comes on the heels of Jones being racially taunted during Monday's series opener in Boston.

When the two teams played on Monday night in Boston, Orioles pitcher Dylan Bundy hit Mookie Betts with a pitch. "For me to be here, and have Boston represent me, and for me to represent Boston, and to hear something like that going on, that definitely hurts me, really".

Hall of Famer and Yankees senior adviser Reggie Jackson said the incident with Jones proves the United States has a long way to go with race relations. You try not to put yourself in a position, for me as a father, I try to give my kids the blueprint on how life is going to be.

He also spoke at length about the racism that Jones faced and said that, while he doesn't remember experiencing racism in Boston at any point in his career, he obviously knows and understands that racism is still a big problem in America.
