CC Sabathia: Boston is only place I have heard N-word

Adam Jones’ horrible experience playing in Boston on Monday night is not coming as a shock to one of his fellow black players.

New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia said on Tuesday that Boston is the only MLB city in which he has been called the N-word.

Boston has long been viewed as a city where the fans can be racist, as Jones and Sabathia are not the first baseball players to say they have received racial taunts while playing there.

The Red Sox and MLB have apologized to Jones for the treatment he received on Monday night, as has Boston’s mayor. Red Sox star Mookie Betts has called on the team’s fans to stand up for Jones.
