Introduction

Last week, Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles reported that he had been racially harassed by Boston Red Sox fans in Fenway Park, who, among other things, threw peanuts and shouted racial slurs at him.

The reaction across baseball was to condemn the fans for what was described as unacceptable behavior.
