The Boston Red Sox have permanently banned a fan from Fenway Park for using a racial slur toward another fan.

Following the racial taunting of Baltimore Orioles player Adam Jones earlier in the week, the Red Sox took action against a fan on Wednesday.

The Red Sox said on Tuesday night that team security received reports that one fan used a racial slur against another fan. The Red Sox said the fan was ejected and told they were no longer welcome at Fenway Park.

The team has since released a statement saying they "will not tolerate the use of racial slurs at Fenway Park."

The matter has now been turned over to Boston Police.
