Red Sox Permanently Ban Fan for Racial Slur at Another Fan

Boston Red Sox fans taunt and take pictures of Baltimore Orioles' Adam Jones after he was ejected for arguing a strikeout call during the fifth inning of a baseball game at Fenway Park in Boston, Wednesday, May 3, 2017.

[UPDATE 9:45 p.m.]: Red Sox president Sam Kennedy confirmed the person has been banned for life.

When the two teams played on Monday night in Boston, Orioles pitcher Dylan Bundy hit Mookie Betts with a pitch.

The Red Sox have apologized, and the MA governor Charlie Baker called it, "unacceptable". "I've never on the road gotten any ovations or anything like that, so it just caught me off guard a little bit".

LeBron James has shut off his social media feed during the Cavaliers' hopeful run to repeat as National Basketball Association champions, but he hasn't been out of the loop when it comes to what occurred at Fenway Park on Monday night.

The ejected fan's name was not released to the public.

The Red Sox said on Tuesday night it was reported to team security that a racial slur was used by one fan toward another. I can't recall me ever hearing something that was racism towards me, but I think it was great that other guys spoke up for him, not even on his own team. If nothing else, this sequence of events presents the Red Sox and Major League Baseball an opportunity to promote awareness to prevent incidents like these. Rookie Jacoby Brissett started two games with Tom Brady suspended as part of his "Deflategate" punishment and backup Jimmy Garoppolo injured. "We have to recognize that this exists in our culture".

"It's nothing new to any of us", Atlanta Braves outfielder Matt Kemp said. "We're going to work hard to do our best to enforce it".

Cubs manager Joe Maddon also weighed in with a few stories of his time in the minor leagues, saying that racism was something that his players had dealt with at various levels of the game.

LeBron James said he hasn't personally experienced racism from fans in Boston.

Palestinian West Bank local elections a test for Fatah party
A man looks for his name on a voter's list at a polling station in the West Bank city of Nablus, Saturday, May 13, 2017. Abbas, 82, is now 12 years into what was to be a four-year term and is an unpopular leader according to opinion polls.

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker called the incident "outrageous and disgraceful".

Hennick said he "immediately found an usher and told him what transpired".

Police Lt. Mike McCarthy said a fan threw a bag of peanuts at the Orioles' dugout and hit a police officer posted nearby, not the center fielder. "People around in the stands will hold other fans accountable".

Most of the reaction has been that the umpire made a huge mistake, especially after Sale was not ejected for throwing a pitch that looked a lot more intentional than this one. On Monday, the All-Star was the target of racial slurs at Fenway Park.

It's a good thing Jones said something, first to USA Today, to bring the issue to the fore because it's been kept under wraps for too long as an open secret.
