Less than 24 hours after he was called racist epithets by fans at Fenway Park, Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones received a nice applause before his first at-bat against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday night.
Jones, one of just 62 African-Americans on opening-day rosters, was the target of racist comments during Monday's game, which he says was "one of the worst" he's ever endured during his 12-year career.
The Orioles are in their second game of a three-game set in Boston.
