May 1 at Fenway Park, racism yet again reared its ugly head when a number of fans hurled bigoted epithets at Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones.
Red Sox ace Chris Sale then threw a 98-mph fastball behind Machado in the first inning of the following game. Red Sox president Sam Kennedy told the Herald that the fan later was notified that he had been banned from the stadium for life.
"We want to make sure that we know exactly what the clubs are doing before we start recommending changes", Manfred said.
"But we may not be ideal, we may not get it exactly right, but we have informed this person that they are no longer welcome at Fenway".
"During Tuesday night's Red Sox-Orioles game, it was reported to Red Sox security that a racial slur was used in a comment from one fan to another fan", the Red Sox said Wednesday.
Before this series, Manny Machado had just four career home runs at Fenway Park.

The two leaders discussed several other issues, including the fight against terrorism, transatlantic relations and the economy. Instead, they say flexibility was the intent, and warn against a withdrawal from the accord.
Farrell also said the team hopes to get utility infielder Brock Holt (vertigo) out on another rehab soon.
That was bad timing for the Baltimore starter that night, Kevin Gausman, who was ejected in the second inning after hitting Mookie Betts on the hip with a curveball. "I felt it was different than the normal, 'I hit your guy, you hit my guy.' As a matter of fact, it had persisted so long, it was hard to trace back who had hit who, when and whose turn it was".
"Look, it has been a concern of ours, the issue of hit batsman, throwing at batters", Manfred said Friday.
Hennick said he notified team security of the incident and the man was ejected from the game, noted Boston.com. "We've just got to go out there and control what we can control and go about our business".
-Manfred called the need for new ballparks in Oakland and Tampa Bay "acute".
"My strong preference consistent with baseball's long tradition is to keep our franchises in the markets where they now play", he said.
