Red Sox apologize for fans' racist taunts of Orioles player Adam Jones

Jones, a five-time All-Star, is among baseball's highest-profile black players.

In response, Red Sox president Sam Kennedy said in a statement, "The Red Sox want to publicly apologize to Adam Jones and the entire Orioles organization for what occurred at Fenway Park Monday night."

Kennedy went on to say that it was still reviewing the incident.

The league did not immediately respond to ABC News' request for comment.

The Boston Red Sox team has two black outfielders, both of whom made the All-Star team last year: centerfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. and right-fielder Mookie Betts, who is among the league's elite players.

The Orioles defeated the Red Sox in the game, 5-2.
