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

Feud continues, Orioles starter ejected as Sox win

The Baltimore Orioles-Boston Red Sox series has been full of drama, from Adam Jones getting called a racial slur to plenty of heated exchanges after pitchers threw at and behind batters.

As the game against the Baltimore Orioles was about to start, a fan uttered a racial slur to another fan regarding the Kenyan woman who sang the national anthem.

Just a day after baseball fans hurled racial slurs and peanuts at a player in Fenway Park, there was another racial encounter, according to Fox News.

The Red Sox went on to say that the organization has reported what occurred to the Boston Police Department for further investigation.

Calvin Hennick, who is white, was at the game with his biracial son and black father-in-law. "I was totally happy to do that, because if he was going to deny it, I wanted him to deny it to my face like the coward he was", Hennick said. 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. But I think it was great that other guys spoke up for him, not even on his own team.

Unfortunately for the Red Sox, Monday's incident was not the end of the story, as the team reportedly had to eject another fan from the ballpark during Tuesday's game.

Tony Parker leaves Spurs' win in fourth quarter with injured leg: Spurs coach Gregg Popovich succinctly summed up the little he knows at this point about the severity of what the team called a left leg injury suffered Wednesday by point guard Tony Parker in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals. As dumb as baseball's unwritten rules and unsafe philosophy on retribution is, if you're going to throw at someone, it's not going to be with a curveball.

"Yes, that's what I said, and I stand by it", the other fan told Hennick. And Sabathia added, to Erik Boland of Newsday, that he'd never been called "the N-word" anywhere but Boston. "It's bad. You've got security guards there and people there and they just sit there and let it happen", Braves outfielder Matt Kemp said.

It's up to the Red Sox and Major League Baseball to put a stop to this forever. After Monday's game, he ripped the Red Sox. "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".
