Why did the Astros vs. Twins Announcer call Jose Altuve a "kid  " ?

Jose is 30 years old and is not a "kid." You never hear a White MLB player called a "kid" no matter his age. That was a racist statement by the ABC Announcer.

Update:

Karl Ravech made the statement.

Update 2:

No one is calling Ken a “kid.”

Update 3:

@Addax, you are right. ESPN have the worst sports announcers. At times I have to mute them. 

Update 4:

You never hear Mike Trout or Gerrit Cole called “kid.”

    Ken Griffey Jr is 50 years old and is STILL being called "the kid."

    Stop looking for racism when it isn't there.
