Outfielder Adam Jones of the Arizona Diamondbacks, after they expelled a San Diego Padres fan for using profanity on Wednesday night, urges viewers to "keep it light" instead of crossing the line with language rude.
We've seen enough to know, not much, really. But that did not stop us from asking our experts to risk what they have observed so far.
Who sways like the child? Who plays with the style of No. 24 in the field? To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Ken Griffey Jr.'s debut in the big leagues, we judge how the most important names in baseball compare to Junior.
Jones had the stadium security team eliminate the fan at Petco Park during Arizona's 4-1 loss to the Padres. He said the fan was "cursing" me while he was tracking a flying ball in right field during the fifth inning.
"These sports fans, man, are starting to get a little more cheeky," said Jones, who is from San Diego, after the game, according to azcentral.com. "I've said it many times, and obviously I've had altercations with the fans, the most important thing is to keep the jokes polite, we stink, I was surprised, the team is not good, keep it light, keep it smart." There are children in the stadium. But the moment you start cursing me like I'm a kid, that's a no-no.
"In the street, they would never do that, in the stadium when you paid for your admission, there is no need for all of that, the moment I hear someone insult us, you're gone, I do not care about that, they're gone. it's how it is, I made a good play and I only heard the word B, the word F, that's not a baseball talk, so … he left. "
It is not the first time that Jones talks about the bad treatment of the spectators. In 2017, while he was with the Baltimore Orioles, Jones said he was the target of racist taunts and dropped a bag of peanuts at Fenway Park in Boston.
