Report: Georgia investigating potential derogatory comments made by baseball player toward football player
A potentially ugly situation is unfolding at Georgia, and it involves a baseball player.
According to a report by UGASports.com, a star baseball player is being investigated by the university for comments he made toward a football player this weekend.
Per the report, 1B Adam Sasser, who was a second-team All-SEC player in 2018, used racially derogatory comments toward a Bulldog football athlete:
According to multiple UGASports sources, however, the alleged incident involves first baseman Adam Sasser making racially derogatory comments directed toward a Bulldog football player during Saturday’s game between Georgia and Tennessee.
Obviously, if that’s true, that’s not a good look for Sasser. On Monday, AD Greg McGarity released a statement addressing the matter:
“We are aware of a reported incident this weekend involving conduct by one of our student-athletes. While we are limited in what we can say about the incident at this time, I want to reemphasize that we do not condone discriminatory behavior,” McGarity said. “The University’s Equal Opportunity Office thoroughly reviews all reported violations of our Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy to ensure an appropriate response.”
Not many details of this situation are known at this time. We’ll update this report if more information comes out in the coming days.
