NEW: The Rockies tell me last nights occurrence was a fan yelling to get the attention of the Rockies mascot Dinger, not a racial slur.

The Rockies inform me no one on the field, consisting of Brinson, heard anything offending.

While it is great news to hear the fan did not utilize a racial slur when Brinson was at the plate for the Marlins, it might be time for Dinger to get a new name.
