Adam Jones has fan ejected from Petco Park
Diamondbacks outfielder Adam Jones had a fan ejected from Petco Park in San Diego yesterday afternoon. Jones said that the fan was “cussing me out” as Jones fielded a fly ball.
Jones -- who is from San Diego -- spoke to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic after the game and explained:
Jones added, “I made a nice play, and just hearing the B-word, F-word, that’s not baseball talk. So … he gone.” He also noted that the matter was simply one of vulgarity and that the fan did not use any racial language, the sort of which he was subjected to in Fenway Park in a much-publicized incident back in 2017.
As of press time we are unaware of people crawling out of the woodwork to say that Jones was making this up like they said about the 2017 incident. I suppose they only do that to reflexively beat back claims of racism that upset their view of society.
