Just ran across this.
-------It's kinda sad, but this is what any baseball fan has already assumed about the fans at Fenway, I think. Gary Sheffield getting a beer in the face, anyone?
Angels OF Torii Hunter told the Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Calif., that until the last couple of years, he regularly heard racist taunts when visiting Fenway as a member of the Minnesota Twins. "I've been called whatever they call me - a lot - since I was a kid," Hunter told the newspaper. "My first five or six (years), I was ?That N-word.' Some people would chant that out, some people would throw beer or whatever . . . batteries." Yesterday, Hunter was reluctant to discuss the incidents. Initially, he politely declined comment, suggesting that such offensive remarks were a thing of the past. "I'm not going to talk about it," Hunter said before the Angels' 7-6 loss to the Red Sox. "That was a couple of years ago."
