A group of people draped a “ Racism Is As American As Baseball ” sign over the Green Monster during tonight’s Red Sox-A’s game at Fenway Park. The sign – black with white lettering – was draped over the left-field wall for a couple of minutes before security removed it

The sign — draped over the top middle of the 37-foot Monster — had a black background with white letters that read: “ Racism is as American as Baseball .” It was up for about one batter and the umpires asked it be removed because it was in fair territory.

The iconic Green Monster at Fenway Park was draped with a sign that read "Racism is as American as baseball" on Wednesday night as the Boston Red Sox played host to the Oakland Athletics.

The banner was quickly confiscated by security personnel, and those holding it were removed from the ballpark, according to Evan Drellich of WEEI.

This marks the second time this season that racism has been a very public issue at Fenway Park. In May, the Red Sox and the mayor of Boston apologized to Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones after the five-time All-Star said he was "called the n-word a handful of times" during a game.
