NEW YORK (AP) Yankees slugger Josh Donaldson was wrong to make a remark referencing Jackie Robinson when speaking to White Sox star Tim Anderson, New York manager Aaron Boone said Sunday.

A day after the comment called "racist" by Chicago manager Tony La Russa - an assessment that Anderson agreed with - Major League Baseball continued to investigate the incident.

Anderson, one of baseball's leading Black voices and an All-Star shortstop, hit a home run as the White Sox completed a doubleheader sweep at Yankee Stadium. He declined interview requests.
