On Tuesday, Boston's Chris Sale threw another pitch behind Machado, prompting an angry tirade from Machado after the game. The Boston Police Department confirmed that its civil rights unit is investigating and will determine whether further action is warranted.

"Yes, that's what I said, and I stand by it", the other fan told Hennick.

Tensions are still high between the two teams, as Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale almost plunked Manny Machado on Tuesday.

As the game against the Baltimore Orioles was about to start, a fan uttered a racial slur to another fan regarding the Kenyan woman who sang the national anthem.

Hennick, who is white, was at the game with his father-in-law, who is originally from Haiti, and his biracial son.

"It's unfortunate that people need to resort to those type of epithets to degrade another human being", Jones said.

Hennick said he found an usher and told him what transpired. But at the end of the day, I can only tell them so much, and they have to go out and live it themselves.

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.

The Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles might have gotten a stern talking to from Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred before Wednesday's game, but that didn't do anything to squelch the war of words between the two teams.

"Thankfully, we didn't have any more problems for the rest of the game". Red Sox team president Sam Kennedy said 34 people were ejected for various reasons Monday night and reiterated the team's "zero tolerance" policy for such incidents. "Jones was clearly competing in the game".

On Monday, Orioles outfielder Adam Jones was subjected to racial taunts by Boston fans during a game. Several black ballplayers said Tuesday that Jones was just describing what they regularly experience.

James said he heard a couple athletes say they expect racist remarks when they play in Boston.

Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia said he heard racial slurs from fans when he pitched for the Indians in Boston, but has never had a problem with NY, where security guards follow players out to the bullpen and maintain a visible presence.

The Orioles were forced to turn to their bullpen in the second inning and eventually lost 4-2. "It's 2017 and we're still kind of dealing with that, especially with how integrated everything is".

"I thought that surely I'd misheard him", Hennick wrote, saying he asked the man to repeat himself.
