Fans were removed from Fenway Park during Wednesday's game between the Oakland Athletics and Boston Red Sox after a banner with the caption "Racism is as American as baseball" was hung from the Green Monster.
Comcast SportsNet New England's Evan Drellich provided an image of the banner being displayed:
Marly Rivera, third base umpire Joe West and Boston police officials worked in conjunction with Fenway Park security to remove the fans holding the sign from the stadium.
The fans unraveled the sign and displayed it on the Green Monster in left field after the top of the fourth inning. Jen McCaffrey of MassLive.com noted the sign "hung for a couple of minutes" before security were able to pull it down.

Maybe baseball has gotten the message football and tennis seem to have totally missed.
Let’s hope so.
We should all contact MLB and let them know in no uncertain terms we approve.
We love baseball and the U.S., but you damned well better know which one more.
The reaction of the crowd would pale in comparison to Cleveland’s infamous 10 Cent Beer Night.....
Red Sox owner John Henry also owns the Boston Globe.He intends to change the name of Yawkey Way (former owner) as Red Sox were last MLB team to hire a black player
Then there was Disco Demolition Night at old Comiskey Park in Chicago, lol.
Leave it to Boston.
The left is restless. BLM and Antifa are just the tip of the iceberg. If conservatives lost the way they are losing, we’d be restless, too.
Why don’t they make these individuals famous? Don’t trumpet their message trumpet their names and pictures.
He needs to tear down Fenway Park.
Ninety seconds of fame. Idiots. *You can clearly tell that the people holding the banner were two white women and one white man, however there was no insignia or further motivating factors on the sign.*
Democraps were the party of slave ownership and KKK. Lincoln was a Republican and the democrats have not been as upset about Trump’s election since Lincoln freed their slaves.
So, were they leftist or white supremist. Or Soros paid to stir up trouble?! I am guessing that they were leftist. It does take a lot of money to print up such a huge sign. If I had that kind of money I would buy some new shoes and get a few restaurant meals along with a day off from work.
What does the banner even mean? Baseball is perhaps the most colorblind of the sports.
One of the communists weapons used to demoralize a population is to bombard people with a constant stream of attack on America’s Foundational Institutions as well as its’ National Institutions such sports, the arts, religion, etc...
The barrage continues until the populace explodes...
You better believe that when they get back in power, and eventually they will, there will be hell to pay.
Racism and dependency is as American as the democrat party.
They are HELPING us.
This simply pisses off normies.
We’ll pay them back with a major chimp-out at election time.
Very ambiguous. Hubby & I said it could go either way. I’m leaning towards lefty though.
