UGA Baseball Player Dismissed For Racist Remarks To QB Justin Fields

A year after leading Georgia to its first NCAA Tournament bid in five years with a breakout season in which he batted .317 with 10 home runs and 44 RBI, Georgia Bulldogs baseball player Adam Sasser has grenade bombed his collegiate career by making idiotic, ill-timed, classless, racially disparaging remarks towards Bulldogs freshman quarterback Justin Fields in the fourth quarter of a game against Tennessee State on Saturday.

The situation was reported on Monday and hit the fan by Tuesday and by that night, the senior first baseman was dismissed by the University in the aftermath of the schools Equal Opportunity Office investigation, according to a university release.

Georgia football coach Kirby Smart spoke out against the alleged incident on Tuesday.

If what I read and heard is true, its really unacceptable behavior thats not who we are at Georgia, Smart said. Were trying to build a program on tolerance and mutual respect. You cant control what other people say, but the expectation is that people that are part of our program and come to our games share the same beliefs that we do.

Its sad that something like this would happen. Im disappointed. But it doesnt affect our family, our unit here and our kids have been great. Its not something Ive had to address with them. Ive addressed it with Justin (Fields). Thats the most important thing.

Those alleged remarks caused a confrontation between Sasser and three students sitting nearby who brought a police officer to the scene.

After the exchange, the heroic whistleblowers — (Left to right in the photo) —  Africa Buggs, Klarissa Gulebian and Sierra Buckner, say they were not afraid to call out Sasser for his alleged racial remarks. They brought the incident to the attention of UGA Athletics administrators on Monday and a full-blown investigation was launched.

Sasser apologized in a statement.
