MLB Predictions: Orioles vs. Red Sox to fall under the total? 5/4/17

The Boston Red Sox confirmed that stadium security was notified a fan used a racial slur -- although apparently not the ones directed at Baltimore Orioles star outfielder Adam Jones -- and the "offending individual was promptly ejected" from Fenway Park on Monday. "The more I think about it, the more I think it was a deliberate thumb in the eye", said Hennick, a 35-year-old white man who was with his biracial 5-year-old son and father-in-law, who is originally from Haiti.

"A young woman from Kenya sang the national anthem and the white fan, middle-aged fan next to me, leaned over after the song and said that she sang too long and she "n-worded" it up", Calvin Hennick said.

Hennick said he "immediately found an usher and told him what transpired".

"I told Holbrook right away, 'You're screwing our bullpen, '" Gausman said.

"The Red Sox organization will not tolerate the use of racial slurs at Fenway Park, and we have apologized to those affected".

Unsure of what he heard, Hennick asked the man to repeat himself, and the man said the slur again, according to reports.

She has also delayed setting out how she will press on with preparing for that referendum until after the election. Sturgeon labelled the EU's Common Fisheries Policy "no longer fit for purpose" during the interview.

While there were no further incidents, Baltimore was forced to turn to reliever Richard Bleier, who surrendered three runs in four innings of work.

"When we see this sort of thing, we must fight back", Hennick wrote on Twitter.

"While there was a residue of racism in the game, certainly it wasn't out in the open when I played", he said.

Isaiah Thomas's 53-point performance earns praise from his idol: Kobe Bryant: Isaiah Thomas's historic Game 2 performance Tuesday received near unanimous acclaim - including from a longtime villain to Celtics fans, who also happens to also be Thomas's all-time favorite basketball player.

As NPR reported, "At Tuesday's game, many fans applauded and stood up as Jones went to bat in the first inning".

While the Celtics and Bruins broke barriers in pro basketball and hockey, the Red Sox were the last Major League Baseball team to field a black player. Fans have numerous ways to procure tickets, and cynical people will say the Red Sox can afford to give one fan the boot because this team has very little trouble selling tickets.
