Orioles outfielder Adam Jones donates $20K to Negro Leagues museum

May 12, 2017

Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones donated $20,000 to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, Missouri.

Jones was the target on racial slurs and had peanuts thrown at him during road game against the Boston Red Sox on May 1.

The Orioles are in Kansas City this weekend for a series against the Royals and Jones plans to visit the museum on Saturday.

After the incident, The Red Sox and Boston's mayor each issued an apology to Jones with the team calling the fan's racist comments "inexcusable."

The Red Sox banned a fan for life from Fenway Park for using a racial slur against another fan in a separate incident.

Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred said the league is considering implementing guidelines and reviewing its security protocols in all 30 of its stadiums.
