Orioles OF Adam Jones Claims Racist Taunts in Boston
BOSTON (AP) — Orioles center fielder Adam Jones says he was taunted with racial slurs at Fenway Park during Baltimore's game against the Boston Red Sox.
Jones, who is black, says someone in the crowd threw a bag of peanuts at him Monday night.
He tells USA Today Sports that he's been the subject of racist heckling in Boston's ballpark before, but this was one of the worst cases of fan abuse he has heard in his 12-year career.
USA Today Sports says the fan was thrown out of the stadium.
