Red Sox Issue Apology To Adam Jones And Orioles

After Adam Jones said that racial slurs were hurled at him a "handful" of times at Fenway last night, the Red Sox formally apologized to the player and the Orioles organization. Team President Sam Kennedy said in a statement:

"The Red Sox want to publicly apologize to Adam Jones and the entire Orioles organization for what occurred at Fenway Park Monday night. No player should have an object thrown at him on the playing field, nor be subjected to any kind of racism at Fenway Park. The Red Sox have zero tolerance for such inexcusable behavior, and our entire organization and our fans are sickened by the conduct of an ignorant few. Such conduct should be reported immediately to Red Sox security, and any spectator behaving in this manner forfeits his/her right to remain in the ballpark, and may be subject to further action. Our review of last night's events is ongoing."

It's important that the Red Sox did this swiftly and directly—there should be zero tolerance for disgusting acts of racism anywhere in our society. In our experience, the acts by these morons are in no way reflective of the vast majority of fans that attend Red Sox games at Fenway Park.
