Kennedy said Tuesday's incident did not involve Jones.

Such was the case once again Wednesday night following his 39-point performance to lead the Cavs to a 125-103 win over the Toronto Raptors to take a 2-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The Red Sox have apologized, and the MA governor Charlie Baker called it, "unacceptable".

If this wasn't enough for one game, Orioles center field Adam Jones, who said he heard racist taunts by Red Sox fans on Monday, also was ejected for arguing with the umpire after a questionable strike 2 call in the fifth inning.

Just a day after baseball fans hurled racial slurs and peanuts at a player in Fenway Park, there was another racial encounter, according to Fox News.

Of course, that was at Daytona in the first race of the 2017 season, and it could charitably be called a wreck-fest. And many say a race at Daytona and Talladega can be both mentally and physically exhausting.

The Boston Red Sox have turned the alleged racial slur incident Tuesday over to the Boston Police for investigation. The man who received the ban reportedly denied that he used the slur.

James admits that he himself hasn't had to deal with racism or racial slurs in Boston during his trips to the TD Garden, however he applauded fellow players and those that stood by Jones' side this week. "Thankfully, we didn't have any more problems the rest of the game".

Kennedy said he believed it was the first time a fan had been banned for life from the ballpark: "It's unprecedented, I think, in baseball", he said.

"I'm here to send a message, loud and clear, that the behavior, the language, the treatment of others that you've heard about and read about is not acceptable", Red Sox president Sam Kennedy said during an impromptu update for reporters in the back of the press box during Wednesday night's game. But at the end of the day, I can only tell them so much, and they have to go out and live it themselves. Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts and Mitch Moreland each added base hits in the winning effort for the Red Sox.

"The racist words and actions directed at Adam Jones at Fenway Park last night are completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated at any of our ballparks", Manfred said Tuesday.

Longtime competitors in the AL East, the rivalry between Boston and Baltimore has never attracted the attention or animosity of a Red Sox-Yankees matchup. "I can't recall ever hearing something that was racism towards me".
