The Colorado Rockies are working to identify a fan who yelled a racial slur at Miami Marlins. Outfielder Lewis Brinson during Sunday's game, an incident the team says left it "disgusted."

The slurs came in the ninth inning at Coors Field with Brinson at the plate, and were so loud that they could be clearly heard on the Bally Sports Florida broadcast. Hours after the game, the Rockies released a statement denouncing the still-unidentified fan and saying they were investigating the incident. Here is what the Rockies said on the incident:

The Colorado Rockies are disgusted at the racial slur by a fan directed at the Marlins' Lewis Brinson during the ninth inning of today's game. Although the subject was not identified prior to the end of the game, the Rockies are investigating this incident. The Rockies have zero tolerance for any form of racism or discrimination, and any fan using derogatory language of any kind will be ejected and banned from Coors Field.

The team indicated that any fan displaying such behavior would be banned from Coors Field.
