Benches cleared on Saturday and the two men had to be separated after several interactions on the bases, starting with the "Jackie" comment.
Donaldson claims he called Anderson "Jackie" because in a 2019 interview with Sports Illustrated, Anderson described himself as feeling like, "today's Jackie Robinson" because of the way he's trying to change MLB.
Anderson and his teammates didn't buy it, calling Donaldson's remarks racist. Yankees fans are backing Donaldson.
