Fan kicked out of Fenway Park after unfurling ‘Trump Won’ banner

A fan was kicked out of Fenway Park in Boston on Monday after unfurling a banner that read “Trump Won Save America.” 

The fan, who has not been identified, unfurled the banner over the center field wall at the home of the Boston Red Sox during the fourth inning of the team’s win over the Miami Marlins, according to WMUR

A team spokesperson said the act constituted a violation of the Red Sox’s policy prohibiting signs of any kind from being hung or affixed to the ballpark, and the person was immediately removed from the ballpark. 

The incident follows a similar one in Yankee Stadium late last month. Two fans were removed from the ballpark after they displayed a large banner declaring “Trump Won Save America.”

Like they did in Boston, fans at Yankee Stadium booed after the men unfurled the banner and cheered as they were ejected from the park. 

It was not immediately clear if the two incidents were connected in any way. 

Since losing the 2020 presidential election, former President Trump has made false statements about a “rigged” election based on what he and his most ardent supporters say is widespread voter fraud. 

Last week, The New York Times’s Maggie Haberman reported that Trump has been pressuring certain prominent members of conservative media to write that the election was stolen and telling people close to him that he expects to be reinstated by August.
