Tim Anderson hit a three-run homer in the eighth inning over the weekend that felt so good that he put a finger to his lips to silence fans booing and chanting “Jackie” at him. It helped the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Yankees 5-0 on Sunday night for a doubleheader sweep.
On Saturday, Anderson accused Yankees slugger Josh Donaldson of making a racist remark by calling him, Jackie Robinson.
Anderson did not play in the first game of Sunday’s doubleheader but fans made sure to boo him during pregame introductions and prior to each at-bat in the second. White Sox starter Michael Kopech said he heard fans chanting “Jackie” at Anderson.
After he crossed home plate, ESPN cameras picked up the message he had for the Yankees fans that booed him as he rounded the bases.
“Everybody f–king shut the f–k up!” he shouted as he walked back to the dugout.
