Yankees supervisor Aaron Boone was suspended and fined following his ejection in Thursday night’s video game versus the Baltimore Orioles
In a declaration from MLB, Boone got the one-game suspension ” for his current conduct towards Major League Umpires, consisting of the actions following his ejection from Thursday night’s video game versus the Baltimore Orioles.”
Boone will not handle the Yankees’ series opener versus the San Diego Padres on Friday.
The phrasing of MLB’s declaration recommends this suspension boiled down due to Boone’s season-long fondness to have intense arguments with umpires, typically causing ejections. Boone’s newest ejection was the 4th of the season, many in the majors.
In the 3rd inning of Thursday’s video game, Boone was seen arguing balls and strikes from the dugout to home base umpire Edwin Moscoso. After a couple of minutes, Moscoso ejected Boone, triggering the Yankee skipper to go out of the dugout to argue and plead his case on the field.
Prior to Friday’s video game, Boone stated “I do not believe I’m being targeted by umpires entering. They are not going to endure particular things. I believe I’m cured relatively.”
