High School Baseball Star Transfers After Assistant Athletic Director Made ‘Racist’ Joke

A high school baseball player in New York state is transferring schools after a “racist” remark from one of the school’s assistant athletic directors this past Friday.

Tony Humphrey, 16, a star baseball player at Iona Preparatory School in New Rochelle, stated that he was transferring to the public high school by his house to continue his education and athletic career.

The junior stated that the decision came out of a back-and-forth that he had with the Iona Prep faculty member. The administrator had approached Humphrey, who was also a member of the school’s track team, to inquire why he would run track in addition to playing baseball.
