Red Sox fan permanently banned from Fenway for using racial slur

Jones created headlines earlier in the week when he told reporters that he had been subjected to racial taunts by fans at Fenway during Monday's game.

Red Sox top Orioles 4-2; Gausman, Jones ejected: Hours after a conference call to tell the Red Sox and Orioles "Enough is enough, " Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman was ejected in the second inning for hitting a batter and Boston went on to win 4-2 Wednesday night.

Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter, center, stands between Adam Jones and home plate umpire Sam Holbrook (34) after Jones was ejected arguing a strikeout during the fifth inning of a baseball game at Fenway Park in Bosto.

"The BPD's Civil Rights Unit is investigating the allegations and will make a determination as to whether further action is warranted", Boston police said.

In between the sports talk on Twitter, fans have joined the conversation with their own takes on the Red Sox-Jones episode that range from skepticism to outrage.

Calvin Hennick, a white man, was at Tuesday's game with his interracial son and black father-in-law when the man next to him made a comment about a Kenyan woman's rendition of the national anthem.




"I thought that surely I'd misheard him", Hennick said in the post. That fan was banned for life from the stadium, according to NBC Boston. We have to deal with them now and it affects a lot of people and a lot of players and a lot of things that go on. "I know that the ball was a curveball, but it hit him square in the back, and just making a split decision at that point right there".

Either way, we're sure to see something new tonight between the Red Sox and Orioles, who have given us no shortage of controversy and drama since Manny Machado's hard slide injured Dustin Pedroia a few weeks ago in Baltimore.

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred held a conference call with Orioles and Red Sox brass on Wednesday to discuss the teams' ongoing feud.

The man denied using the slur when approached by Red Sox security. I think some guys from the Red Sox spoke up for Adam Jones saying like, 'Hey fans, we need you guys to, this is a situation where you need to have a standing ovation. The offending individual was promptly ejected from the ballpark, and has since been notified they are no longer welcome at Fenway Park.

But James knew about the message posted on Twitter by Mookie Betts of the Red Sox. And Sabathia added, to Erik Boland of Newsday, that he'd never been called "the N-word" anywhere but Boston. After Monday's game, he ripped the Red Sox.
