Josh Donaldson suspended one game for calling Tim Anderson ‘Jackie’

+

New York Yankees third baseman Josh Donaldson received a one-game suspension and must pay an undisclosed fine for a comment made to Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson, Major League Baseball announced Monday. Donaldson admitted to calling Anderson, one of baseball’s ever-shrinking cohort of Black stars, "Jackie" during the Yankees’ 7-5 win over the White Sox on Saturday at Yankee Stadium. The comment was a reference to Jackie Robinson, who became the first Black player to play in the major leagues in 1947. Robinson endured relentless racism as he integrated a sport that continues to struggle to make Black athletes feel at home 75 years later.
