Red Sox Fans Give Standing Ovation To Adam Jones 01:09

Ellis Copeland | 03 May, 2017, 22:27

I'll get suspended for the year, and the pitcher will only get suspended for two games.

Before the game Jones received an apology from Red Sox president Sam Kennedy on behalf of the club. "It was not clever".

"Boston has a reputation, partially left over from a long time ago, that there is more racism within Boston sports", said Richard Lapchick, director of The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida.

"I lost my respect for that organization, Boston and how they're handling that whole situation", he said. "I mean, if you're going to (expletive) hit me, go ahead and (expletive) hit me".

Let's start with Fenway Park itself, which lies on 4 Yawkey Way, a street named in honor of Tom Yawkey, owner of the Boston Red Sox from 1933 until his death in 1976.

"It's changed a lot over many years, but it sure takes a long time to change everything", said Steve McHugh, who is White and said he's been a Red Sox fan since he moved to the Boston area in 1977.

But Monday's incident struck a chord with other players who echoed Jones' complaints and stirred up a debate about the behavior of Boston sports fans.

More black and Latino fans have begun attending games at Fenway, but they remain largely in the minority, said Doane, who has regularly attended Red Sox games since 1963.

"Just appreciative that action was taken and not everybody feels the same way as selected people", Jones said. The Red Sox' designated hitter got off to a slow start this season, but he's now gone 11-for-29 with five longballs over his last eight contests. May. He has held his temper and played the game on the field magnificently.

Gonzalez hit a towering fly off Keone Kela (0-1) just over the right-field wall and inside the right-field foul pole for his first career grand slam and a 7-5 lead. Yawkey's beliefs were the main reason why the Red Sox were the last of the pre-expansion Major League Baseball clubs to integrate.

On Tuesday, Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia said: "You get called names, N-word, all kinds of stuff when you go to Boston".

"Typically you don't see it that early, and they're going to determine there's intent immediately", Farrell said.

"On a scale of one to 10, I probably only had a four knuckleball", Dickey said.

"Berate us, cuss us out, tell us we suck", Jones said.

Gov. Charlie Baker said he didn't think the incidents reflect a wider issue in the state. They're still thinking about that same slide that I did that was no, there was not intention on hurting anybody, and I'm still paying, I'm still trying to get hit at.
