Red Sox OF Crawford says NH fan yelled racial slur
Crawford says he hasn't heard such things in Boston.
Crawford has had a chilly reception since signing a seven-year, $142 million deal with the Red Sox. In his first season in Boston, he hit .255 with 11 homers, 56 RBIs and 18 stolen bases.
He has yet to play in the big leagues this season because of a sprained ligament in his throwing elbow.
Crawford says he understands why fans who love their team are disappointed in his production. But he had a problem with the one in New Hampshire. Crawford says: "He was the only one I had a problem with."
Video of Crawford's postgame comments were posted on WEEI.com.
