Ron Darling said Tuesday on ESPN Radio that he stands by his account that former New York Mets teammate Lenny Dykstra shouted racial slurs at Boston Red Sox pitcher Dennis "Oil Can" Boyd before his first at-bat in Game 3 of the 1986 World Series.

Darling made his comments on ESPN Radio's Golic & Wingo show after Dykstra threatened to sue him over his allegations in an appearance on 98.7 ESPN New York's Michael Kay Show on Monday. Former Mets teammates Dwight Gooden and Kevin Mitchell also said on the Michael Kay Show that they never heard Dykstra say the slurs to Boyd.
