New York Yankee player Michael Kopech said,  “I think that was just one of the cooler things I’ve seen watching an entire crowd that’s shown low class towards him, booing him, calling him ‘Jackie’ and then hitting a homer and putting us in a good position to win.”

He, later on, said that, “Have nothing but respect for him.” Anderson refused to speak to the reporters before or after the doubleheader.

Manager of Chicago White Sox, Tony La Russa “When you talk about how special he is, just think about the game he had under those circumstances,” La Russa also said, “It’s special.”

On Sunday Josh Donaldson Acknowledged the incident saying that calling Anderson “Jackie” was part of an inside joke between him and Anderson. While calling him “Jackie” he was referring to the legendary baseball star, Jackie Robinson.

Anderson once said,” I feel like today’s Jackie Robinson”.

The MLB is now investigating the whole incident while Josh Donaldson is suspended for one match along with an undisclosed amount of fine on him.
