"These fans in sports, man, they're starting to get a little more brazen," Jones, who is from San Diego, said after the game, according to azcentral.com. "I've said it many times, and obviously I've had altercations with fans. My biggest thing is, keep the banter polite -- we suck, I struck out, the team's not good. Keep it light, keep it smart. There's kids in the stadium. But the second you start cussing me out like I'm a little kid, that's a no-no.
"On the street, they'd never do that. In the ballpark when you've paid your admission, there's no need for all that stuff. The second I hear somebody cussing us out, you're gone. I could care less that they're gone. That's just how it is. I made a nice play, and just hearing the B-word, F-word, that's not baseball talk. So ... he gone."
