Fenway Crowd Gives Adam Jones Standing Ovation The Day After He Was Subject To Racial Slurs From Red Sox Fans
Last night, Orioles outfielder Adam Jones revealed he was subject to racial slurs during Monday’s game between the Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox
“A disrespectful fan threw a bag of peanuts at me,’’ Jones said, “I was called the N-word a handful of times tonight. Thanks. Pretty awesome.’’
“It’s unfortunate. The best thing about myself is that I continue to move on, and still play the game hard. Let people be who they are. Let them show their true colors.’’
Today, Jones stepped to the plate at Fenway and instead of getting berated he was greeted to a loud, lengthy standing ovation from Red Sox fans.
