Fans Denounce Racism with Sign Above Green Monster

BOSTON (AP) – A few fans seated above the Green Monster dropped down a sign denouncing racism during the fourth inning of Boston’s game against Oakland at Fenway Park on Wednesday night.

The sign – draped over the top middle of the Monster – had a black background with white letters that read: “Racism is as American as baseball.” It was up for about one batter, there was a spattering of boos from the crowd as Red Sox security forced them to remove it and escorted the people from their seats.
