A Black New York Mets pitcher was the subject of a racially-coded remark about his du-rag from a white Major League Baseball announcer during a Tuesday night game. Marcus Stroman now also appears to be considering starting a du-rag line. 

During the fourth inning against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Bob Brenly appeared to mock Stroman for wearing a du-rag underneath his baseball cap. He referenced the late Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Seaver. Stroman, who regularly wears his du-rag to cover his locs, was pitching at the time of the remark, The Hill reported

"Pretty sure that's the same du-rag that Tom Seaver used to wear when he pitched for the Mets," Brenly can be heard saying.

Post-match, the pitcher acknowledged the incident on Twitter with a classy response.
