“I have seen Mookie Betts, he tweeted at me. (David) Price texted me this morning. It’s pretty awesome that they see it. It’s bigger than the game. These kind of things are bigger than the game. This a game. It isn’t life or death. There are bigger issues in the world than a baseball game. This is purely entertainment.”
Orioles’ Adam Jones Perfect Response To Racist Red Sox Fan: ‘SQUARE UP’ (VIDEO)
On Monday night, Adam Jones not only had peanuts thrown at him by the Boston Red Sox crowd, but racial slurs were also thrown his way during the game.
“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 different,’’ he said. “Very unfortunate. I heard there was 59 or 60 ejections tonight in the ballpark. It is what it is, right. I just go out and play baseball. It’s unfortunate that people need report to those type of epithets to degrade another human being. I’m trying to make a living for myself and for my family.
On Tuesday, Jones had the perfect response to the cowards who threw racial epithets at him.
“Square up,” Jones said prior to Tuesday’s game at Fenway Park. “Let’s fight and get it over with.”
