New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone, outfielder Brett Gardner and pitcher CC Sabathia — who is on the injured list — were all thrown out of Saturday’s game against the Cleveland Indians for arguing balls and strikes.
Boone was tossed by home plate umpire Ben May when he came out in the sixth inning to argue calls following a strikeout of Cameron Maybin.
Gardner was ejected by first-base umpire Phil Cuzzi for banging the dugout ceiling with a bat — a method of protest he has adopted since he was hit in the head by a helmet he slammed against the dugout wall. Gardner also banged the bat on July 18, while Boone was making his “savages” rant.
Sabathia stormed out of the dugout to protest Gardner’s ejection and was also tossed by Cuzzi.
