Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa said that New York Yankees designated hitter Josh Donaldson directed a racist comment toward White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson.
Following his team’s 7-5 defeat Saturday, La Russa told reporters that Donaldson “made a racist comment.” He declined to provide any further details, saying the allegation “is as strong as it gets.”
Anderson said that Donaldson called him “Jackie,” referring to baseball legend Jackie Robinson. He added he concurred with La Russa’s description of the remark as “racist.”
