Charles Johnson issued statements regarding his donation to apolitical action committee that recently ran a racist radio ad in Arkansas.With regard to Johnson's donation Blake Treinen Jersey , the Giants released the following statement:"The Giants' reputation as one of the most inclusive and socially engaged professional sports teams in the nation speaks for itself. We are unaware of Mr. Johnson's political donationsbecause they are entirely separate from his stake in the Giants ownership group. In no way do the Giants condone this disturbing and divisive political activity."Johnson also released a statement on the matter, saying, "I had absolutely no knowledge that this donation would be used in this manner and I, like the Giants organization, strongly condemn any form of racism and in no way condone the advertisement that was created by this entity."According to Sarah Ravani of SFGate.com, Johnson donated $1 http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-chris-hatcher-jersey ,000 to a super PAC calledBlack Americans for the President's Agenda over the summer.In the radio ad, two women urge voters to vote Republican after saying that "white Democrats will be lynching black folk again."One of the women in the ad also said, "We can't afford to let white Democrats take us back to bad old days of race verdicts, life sentences and lynchings when a white girl screams rape."Arkansas congressional candidates French Hill and Clarke Tucker both condemned the radio spot since its airing.The 85-year-old Johnsonhas been partof the Giants' ownership group since 1992and became known as the principal owner in 2011. Jim McIsaac/Getty ImagesNew York Yankees catcherAustin Romine was named the team's recipient of the HeartHustle Award, and the timing couldn't have been more ironic.The team announced the news Tuesday:New York Yankees YankeesCongrats to Yankees #HeartandHustle award winner, Austin Romine! mn81fVulSOThat comes on the morning after New York lost to the Tampa Bay Rays 7-6 Sean Manaea Jersey , which ended with the tying run being negated because starting catcher Gary Sanchez failed to run out a grounderconfused smileyanchez admitted after the game that he should have given 100 percent on the play:And that's not even mentioning the way he allowed a runner to score from second on a passed ball:Jon Heyman of Fancred later reported that it is believed Sanchez reaggravated his groin injury on the passed ball and willbe placed on the disabled list.With the loss and the Boston Red Sox's 5-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees (63-35) are now six games back in the American League East. They do, however, hold a 6.5-game edge in the wild-card race.It was just the latest hiccup for Sanchez in what has been a rough season for the 22-year-old. Just one year removed from an All-Star selection, he is hitting .188 with 14 home runs, 14 doubles and 42 RBI in 66 appearances. For comparison http://www.athleticsfanproshop.com/authentic-boog-powell-jersey , he hit .278 with 33 home runs and 20 doubles in 2017.Sanchez also ranks sixth among AL catchers with four errors.Meanwhile, Romine is trending in the opposite direction. While he owns a .229 career average, the 22-year-old backup is hitting .270/.331/.484 with six home runs, nine doubles and 26 RBI in 41 games.Sanchez's power is good enough for New York skipper Aaron Boone to put up with the low batting average, the defensive miscues and lapses like the one in Monday night's contest. However, Yankees fans couldn't help but notice how poor the timing of Romine's award was:Adam ATB_1990Yankees How did Sanchez not get this award???馃FakeFan Downtown davidtabrownYankees Worst timing ever...Justin Diamond justinddiamondYankees Sanchez SNUBBEDLuke Owens LukeTheKid3Yankees Take notes GaryBlake Crocitto BCTWENTY3Yankees Could not have asked for better timing #HeartandHustle Congrats Austin RomineAs much as fans may want it to be Pat Neshek Jersey , this was no shade thrown by the Yankees.Otherteamsaround the league also announced their recipients Tuesday.
