Is anybody still watching baseball? After Major League Baseball made Marxist, race-baiting agitprop a permanent part of its website, and moved the All-Star Game away from Atlanta because Georgia legislators had the temerity to act to prevent voter fraud, numerous longtime baseball fans (me included) turned away from the game. But many Americans apparently still love sports more than they hate Leftist propaganda and the politicization of everything. An astonishing 34,000 people were on hand at Denver’s Coors Field Sunday for a largely meaningless game between two teams that are going nowhere, the Miami Marlins and the Colorado Rockies, and thus were on hand to witness America’s latest racist atrocity: a fan repeatedly shouting “N***er” at a black player. Except, as you may already have guessed, no one shouted any such thing.
On Sunday night, the Rockies posted a statement: “The Colorado Rockies are disgusted at the racial slur by a fan directed at the Marlins’ Lewis Brinson during the ninth inning of today’s game. Although the subject was not identified prior to the end of the game, the Rockies are still investigating this incident. The Rockies have zero tolerance for any form of racism or discrimination, and any fan using derogatory language of any kind will be ejected and banned from Coors Field.”
There was just one problem with all this. Video of the incident shows the fan in question not even looking at Brinson or the game at all. He is looking at the Rockies’ mascot, which is named “Dinger,” waving to him and calling out his name. The Rockies acknowledged this Monday by retweeting sportswriter Thomas Harding, who covers the team: “I have talked to the #Rockies, who investigated the incident, tracked the fan, talked to #Markins [sic] Lewis Brinson. And as many of you and #9NEWS has reported, the fan was yelling for mascot ‘Dinger.’ Apologies come from the club, which also thought it hears the insult. And from me for casting aspersions on the fan base and stadium worker. The team also tracked video and audio from both broadcasts, even talked to season ticket holders, the fan and his wife. I am happy for the conclusion.” – READ MORE
