The Washington Nationals banned two fans from Nationals Park for five years after making inappropriate comments toward Chicago Cubs star Willson Contreras, based on the Chicago Tribune‘s Meghan Montemurro.

Following his team’s 7-5 make an impression on the Nationals on Tuesday, Contreras referenced an incident where heckling by Nationals fans crossed the line:

Willson Contreras: Im not likely to say it at this time, but what he said, he got under my skin. Despite the fact that he was a Latino guy, and youre speaking exactly the same language, I understand what he means. If somebody tried to screw up my children, theyre likely to (need to proceed through) me first.

Per Montemurro, the exchange came in the 10th inning. Contreras hit a sacrifice fly and began speaking with one fan on his in the past to the dugout. The report noted a minumum of one fan was escorted from their seat by security.

This comes fourteen days after Kansas City Royals reliever Amir Garrett tossed his drink toward a fan behind the team’s dugout throughout a game contrary to the Chicago White Sox.

“Listen the disrespect is insane in these parks,” Garrett wrote on Twitter in the immediate aftermath. “I must say i wish I possibly could head to someones work and run my mouth. They are grown men talking slick. How miserable must you be with your personal life?”

The southpaw subsequently apologized and received a three-game suspension, that is under appeal.
