After an ugly incident at Fenway Park Monday night, The Red Sox are apologizing. Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones said fans taunted him with racial slurs during the game, which the Orioles won. Jones said he was "called the 'N' word a handful of times, and that a fan threw a bag of peanuts at him. The fan was removed from the stadium by security, according to the team.
“The Red Sox want to publicly apologize to Adam Jones and the entire Orioles organization for what occurred at Fenway Park Monday night. No player should have an object thrown at him on the playing field, nor be subjected to any kind of racism at Fenway Park,” Red Sox President Sam Kennedy said in a statement. “The Red Sox have zero tolerance for such inexcusable behavior, and our entire organization and our fans are sickened by the conduct of an ignorant few.”
The statement continued: “Such conduct should be reported immediately to Red Sox security, and any spectator behaving in this manner forfeits his/her right to remain in the ballpark, and may be subject to further action. Our review of last night’s events is ongoing.”
