Orioles all-star outfielder Adam Jones had himself a pretty good day at the plate during Baltimore’s 10-2 win over the Giants at AT&T Park this past Sunday. Jones went 2 for 5 with four RBIs, three of those coming off a 9th inning home run off San Fran lefty Barry Zito. But Jones’ stellar day was marred by a Giants fan who, Jones claims, threw a banana in his general direction while he patrolled center field in the bottom of the ninth. Stay classy, San Francisco…or at least stay classy, small, yet moronic, segment of the San Fran population who thinks it’s funny to throw bananas at black ballplayers. The Baltimore slugger took to Twitter to voice his displeasure, calling out the unknown fan for his obvious racist gesture… I want to thank whatever slapdick threw that banana towards my direction in CF in the last inning. Way to show ur class u *******. — Adam Jones (@SimplyAJ10) August 11, 2013 While the Giants front office claim they received “no reports of an incident involving anything being throw on to the field in the bottom of the ninth inning,” the team has said they will review security footage to see if there was an object thrown at Jones in the game’s last half inning. Jones, meanwhile, not only had to put up with the stupid antics of an allegedly disturbed and bigoted Giants fan, but he also had to listen to people actually defend this moron’s actions, because to some people it’s still OK in 2013 to throw bananas at African-American… I love how some ppl are defending the actions by someone today. Shows how u really are also. All good wit me. I just #StayHungry — Adam Jones (@SimplyAJ10) August 12, 2013 The O’s outfielder even went so far as to say that the incident, and the ridiculous people justifying the banana throwing fans actions, may lead him to leave social media altogether. Hopefully Jones can put this ugly incident behind him and be convinced by the non-racists among his 130,000 plus followers to remain on Twitter, because the world of social media is a better place with Adam Jones in it.
