Yankees, White Sox benches clear after Josh Donaldson calls Tim Anderson ‘Jackie’ Robinson

“He made a racist comment, Donaldson, and that’s all I’m gonna say,” La Russa said.

Anderson later revealed what Donaldson said to him, telling reporters that the Yankees third baseman called him “Jackie Robinson” on multiple occasions throughout the game.

He just made a disrespectful comment,” Anderson said. “Basically was trying to call me Jackie Robinson, like ‘what’s up Jackie?’ I don’t play like that. I don’t really play at all. I wasn’t really gonna bother nobody today. But he made the comment, and it was disrespectful. I don’t think it was called for.”

Anderson then said that Donaldson called him Jackie “the first time he got on” and later repeated it.

“I spared him that time, and then it happened again,” Anderson continued.
