During Monday’s Red Sox game against the Miami Marlins, a fan was escorted out of Fenway Park after he unfurled a “Trump won, save America” banner against the centerfield wall during the fourth inning.

A team spokesperson told WCVB the act violated a Red Sox policy prohibiting signs of any kind being hung or affixed to the ballpark, so the fan was escorted out by security.

This wasn’t the first time a fan has been removed for hanging a banner during a game at the ballpark. In 2017, fans were removed for dropping a banner over the Green Monster that read “Racism is as American as baseball.”
