As a sports fan I'm disgusted. But tbh I wasnt surprised when I found out it was a SF Giants fan that did it.
Orioles outfielder Adam Jones had plenty to be pleased about after Baltimore's 10-2 road victory over the Giants, but a possible racially motivated incident forced the All-Star to take to Twitter to voice his displeasure.
"I want to thank whatever slapd--- threw that banana towards my direction in CF in the last inning. Way to show ur class u jacka--," Jones tweeted to his more than 129,000 followers.
Jones, who is black, went 2-for-5 with a home run and four RBIs on Sunday.
Jim Moorehead, the Giants' senior director of media relations, told The (Baltimore) Sun on Sunday night that the Giants received no reports of an incident involving anything being thrown onto the field in the bottom of the ninth inning. Moorehead, however, told the Sun that the Giants will review security footage Monday.
Throwing a banana in the direction of a black player is considered a racist action and has taken place previously in the NHL as well as in European soccer.
