More dramatics between Orioles, Red Sox at Fenway Park

11 May 2017

The incident occurred days after Jones said fans used racial slurs and threw peanuts at him during the Orioles' Monday night win against the Red Sox.

The fan was ejected and told not to come back to Fenway after he used a slur in speaking to another fan about the Kenyan woman who had just sang the anthem before Tuesday's game.

Calvin Hennick, who is white, was at the game with his biracial son and black father-in-law.

Security at the ballpark removed the fans from the game, and Red Sox owner John Henry met with Jones after the game to apologize for the incident.

A separate Red Sox fan alerted security who eventually ejected the man and permanently restricted him from returning to Fenway Park.

Mercedes' other driver, Lewis Hamilton, started the race in fourth but couldn't follow his teammate through the red wall. The Finnish Mercedes driver was joined on the podium by the two Ferrari rivals - Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen.

The Red Sox crowd, including some of the team's players, gave outfielder Jones the reception when he came to the plate for his first at-bat because Jones had been the target of racial taunts the night before. The Red Sox have turned the matter over to the Boston Police Department, who will further investigate with their civil rights unit and determine whether it merits further action.

James admits that he himself hasn't had to deal with racism or racial slurs in Boston during his trips to the TD Garden, however he applauded fellow players and those that stood by Jones' side this week.

After Monday's game, the Red Sox issued a statement reading, "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". "But not before I was brought to identify him, at which point the man denied saying what he had said to me three times", Hennick said.

Two days later, Red Sox pitcher Matt Barnes was ejected for throwing behind Machado's head.

According to WEEI, Kennedy believes this is the first time a lifetime ban has been imposed for a fan at Fenway Park.

Torre held a conference call with the two managers, Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski and Orioles GM Dan Duquette Wednesday afternoon.

Hennick said the incident happened immediately following the singing of the national anthem.

"Martin Luther King, all he talked about was trying to unite all of us - no matter the color, the no matter the race, no matter the shape or size", James said. "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".
