Aaron Boone suspended one game

Yankees manager Aaron Boone has received a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine for his inappropriate actions, including contact with the home-plate umpire, during the bottom of the second inning of his club’s Thursday afternoon game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Yankee Stadium. Joe Torre, Chief Baseball Officer for Major League Baseball, made the announcement.

Boone’s suspension will be served tonight, when the Yankees are to host the Colorado Rockies.

Ejected in the second inning of the Yankees’ 6-2 victory over the Rays in Game 1 of Thursday’s doubleheader, Boone provided home-plate umpire Brennan Miller with a lengthy admonishment that included referring to the Bombers’ hitters as “[bleeping] savages in that [bleeping] box.”

“Sometimes in the heat of battle, you utter some things,” Boone said, almost sheepishly, hours later. “I feel that way about our guys right now.”
