A separate Red Sox fan alerted security who eventually ejected the man and permanently restricted him from returning to Fenway Park. You try not to put yourself in a position - for me as a father - I try to give my kids the blueprint on how life is gonna be. "I asked him to repeat himself, and he said [it] again".

The Red Sox, who issued an apology to Jones and the Orioles on Tuesday, said they were "sickened" by the incident and that they maintain a zero tolerance policy for such fan behavior.

Tony Parker leaves Spurs' win in fourth quarter with injured leg: Spurs coach Gregg Popovich succinctly summed up the little he knows at this point about the severity of what the team called a left leg injury suffered Wednesday by point guard Tony Parker in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals. He said the Red Sox moved his family away from the scene, and kicked the fan out of the game. There is no place for racial epithets at Fenway Parker, in baseball, or in our society.

Gausman said it was "pretty bush league" that he was tossed, especially since Red Sox starter Chris Sale was merely warned after throwing a pitch behind Manny Machado the night before.

"I'm glad the Sox are encouraging fans to come forward", said Hennick, a freelance journalist who has written essays on raising a biracial son for Yahoo and Ebony.

BOSTON (AP) - Orioles starter Kevin Gausman was ejected in the second inning of Wednesday night's game against the Red Sox after hitting Boston's Xander Bogaerts with a pitch - the latest in a series of beanballs and brushbacks that have turned the teams' matchups this season into a boiling rivalry.

Malkin's deflection was initially waved off for goaltender interference, but the Penguins challenged and the call was overturned. Pittsburgh RW Patric Hornqvist left the game in the first period after blocking a shot by John Carlson and did not return.

The man denied using the slur when approached by Red Sox security. "Thankfully, we didn't have any more problems for the rest of the game". "If they're going to hit me, hit me".

"I'm here to send a message loud and clear that the treatment of others that you've been reading about here lately is unacceptable", Kennedy said to reporters during Wednesday night's game.

Kennedy said he believed it was the first time a fan had been banned for life from the ballpark: "It's unprecedented, I think, in baseball", he said.

"The white fan right next to me, the middle-aged man leaned over and said 'she sang too long and she n-worded it up, '" Hennick told WBZ. And now we're sitting here having to answer questions while the Red Sox are on their way home and it's just malarkey is what it is. "I can't recall ever hearing something that was racism towards me".

Tensions are still high between the two teams, as Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale almost plunked Manny Machado on Tuesday.
