The Rockies organization and Coors Field have not yet publicly addressed the situation, and the man has yet to be identified. But some people in the team’s orbit are already calling on the man to be banned from the stadium for life.
“I’m absolutely disgusted at the language that was picked up by the mics late in the game today,” Marlins play-by-play announcer Paul Severino wrote on Twitter. “The level of hate that was displayed has no place in this world. Unfortunately it’s still far too prevalent. We need to be better. And soon.”
TMZ also noted that the MLB App wasn’t allowing viewers to watch the game after the fact, suspecting that it may have been censored.
