Just hours before Friday’s first match aired, Aaron Boone vowed he’d try to start a new streak of not getting kicked out of matches.
He’s going to have to start working on being on his best behavior on Saturday, though, because he wasn’t allowed to be on Friday.
Major League Baseball said in a statement that the Yankees coach received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for his “recent conduct toward major league umpires.”
Boone was set to serve his series-opening suspension in The Bronx against the Padres.
The night before, Boone was thrown out by home plate umpire Edwin Moscoso for arguing balls and strikes midway through the third inning of a 3-1 loss to the Orioles.
And Boone, feeling the hook was unjustified, took to the court to argue and possibly get some spit on Moscoso, which likely led to the suspension.
Boone was hurled for the second time in four matches and the third time in the last 10 matches.
