Adam Jones Responds To Being Called N Word By Red Sox Fans Gets Ovation The Night

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.

On Tuesday, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh called what happened "unacceptable", and Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts urged Fenway Park attendees to stand up for Jones at Wednesday's game, which many did.

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.

On Tuesday, Jones - who had asked that fans just stick to booing - was greeted with a loud ovation at Fenway Park. The team turned the matter over to Boston Police to determine if further action is warranted. However, the O's star said before Tuesday's game that he thought the way the Red Sox and Major League Baseball "got ahead" of the aftermath of Monday's incident "was tremendous".

The Boston Red Sox have permanently banned a fan for using a racial slur during a game earlier this week.

When he stepped up for his first at-bat during Tuesday night's game, he was also given an extended applause from the Fenway crowd, with Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale stepping off the mound to allow the applause to continue.

Michael Towns, 39, has been a casual fan of the Red Sox since attending the University of Rhode Island.

How to Watch the 2017 Kentucky Derby
TV Channel: NBC is airing the Kentucky Derby and their extended coverage spans from 2:30 p.m. - 7:30 pm. While Saturday's Run for the Roses has been billed as wide open, Demling considers it a two-horse race.

Calvin Hennick, a former Boston Globe freelancer, told the paper that a white man made a racial slur to him in regards to the national anthem singer's rendition of the song.

Hennick said he notified stadium staff after confronting the fan, who repeated the remark.

Umpire Sam Holbrook chose to eject Kevin Gausman from the game last night and Duquette said, "it clearly wasn't the right thing to do".

Gausman would later say that he wasn't even sure who had been ejected at first.

Dustin Pedroia, who returned to the leadoff spot after spending the past five games, singled and stroked an RBI sacrifice fly to left field that put the Red Sox ahead 4-0. The offending fan was informed that they "are no longer welcome at Fenway Park".

While Kennedy called the conduct the acts of "an ignorant few", City Councilor Ayanna Pressley said in a statement that the incident "lays bare the racism that many residents of our city grapple with on a regular basis". "For me, I've been to Boston and played in Boston a lot. I've heard it my whole life, so it is what it is". "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. "People are feeling very comfortable with bigotry that we haven't seen in a long time". We don't know what he said, but Jones never once got in Holbrook's face about that call but yet, he was still ejected.
