Jones moving past banana-throwing incident
PHOENIX - Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones is moving on a day after tweeting a fan in San Francisco threw a banana onto the field near him.
Jones said on Twitter after Sunday's game against the Giants that someone threw a banana at him in the ninth inning.
He told reporters before Monday's game against Arizona that the incident was unfortunate, but that he had bigger things to worry about.
The San Francisco Giants issued an apology to Jones and the Orioles for the fan's behavior, but weren't able to identify the person. Jones, who is black, had homered in the top of the ninth.
A Giants fan told the San Jose Mercury News that he threw the banana, but said it was out of anger at the Giants and not racially motivated.
