OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Vanderbilt athletic director Candice Storey Lee is condemning the use of racially offensive language directed at some of the parents of the Commodores players during Game 1 of the College World Series finals.

Storey Lee tweeted that she’s deeply troubled that some of the parents were subjected to racist slurs.

She called the behavior unacceptable and disgraceful.

Vanderbilt is playing Mississippi State in the best-of-three finals. Vandy won the opener.

The communications director for the agency that operates TD Ameritrade Park says stadium officials are gathering information from event staff.
