The MLB had a round of bad publicity last weekend after a fan said “Dinger”, the name of the Rockies’ mascott, and was heard as the N-word.

To make the matter worse, a ESPN actually said the  N-word on live television.

So, for the second time in as many days, it appears that the n-word slipped out, or at least in this instance it did. The MLB landscape has caught some heat because of it. Perhaps another word should be used instead of dinger just to avoid any further situations like this one.
