NEW YORK (AP) Chicago White Sox star shortstop Tim Anderson accused Yankees slugger Josh Donaldson of making a racist remark by calling him Jackie Robinson during Saturday's game against New York.

"He just made a, you know, disrespectful comment," said Anderson, who is Black, "Basically, it was trying to call me Jackie Robinson. Like, `What's up, Jackie?'"

"I don't think it was called for," Anderson added after New York's 7-5 win at Yankee Stadium.
