UPDATE: The Rockies have released a statement regarding the situation. That statement can be found at the bottom of this post. 

The Colorado Rockies had a magnificent weekend after completing a 3 game sweep of the Miami Marlins on Sunday with a 13-8 win. After the game however, reports started circulating about a fan who was possibly using a racial slur towards a Marlins player in the ninth inning.

According to the Associated Press, Lewis Brinson of the Miami Marlins was allegedly targeted by a fan at Coors Field who repeatedly shouted a racial slur at the Black outfielder when he batted in the ninth inning Sunday.

Brinson himself, the other players on the field and personnel in the dugout did not hear the slur. It was apparently picked up on the Bally Sports Florida telecast.


With all of that being said,

Now to ME, I hear the man yelling "Dinger" and looking towards the Rockies dugout where the mascot was getting ready to charge the field and wave the Rockies flag after the final pitch. I was at the game yesterday and remember pointing out Dinger to my six year old who was down by the dugout waiting. (Which he did because the Rockies won...yay!)

The man appeared to not even be looking toward the field of play while yelling. I HOPE that was the case, and I truly believe that was the case after watching that video. That's what it sounds like to my ear. What do YOU think?

After looking into the incident, the Rockies have released a statement following investigation:
