Boone’s ejection has become something of legend in the 24 hours or so since it happened. Yankees players backed him big time. New York’s social media team trolled the umpire in question following Thursday’s win.
In talking about the situation, Boone noted that he has absolutely no regrets over the ejection and ultimate suspension.
Boone couldn’t be more right here. Veteran Brett Gardner completely lost his mind in the dugout after questionable strike calls.
The manager wanted to make a point. Maybe take a bullet for his players. It’s only going to lead to respect from said players and unity moving forward.
Missing one-plus game and facing an unknown fine is more than worth it for Mr. Boone.
