The Giants released a statement in response to a fan allegedly throwing a banana at Baltimore Orioles outfielder Adam Jones Sunday at AT&T Park.

Jones sent a tweet following Baltimore's 10-2 win Sunday:

The Giants reviewed video footage from Sunday in an attempt to find the fan and sent out the following statement Monday:

"We were extremely disappointed to learn about the incident involving Adam Jones at AT&T Park yesterday. The Giants have a zero tolerance policy against this type of behavior, which results in immediate ejection from the ballpark. While we have been investigating the matter since we learned of the situation, unfortunately we have been unable to identify the person responsible. We would like to extend our sincerest apologies to Adam and the entire Orioles organization for this unfortunate incident. The inappropriate actions of this individual in no way reflect the values of our organization and our fans."
