I have never in my life seen this …

Only two batters into Monday afternoon’s game against the Oakland Athletics, and New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone was ejected. Nothing out of the ordinary, right?

Well, he ended up being ejected for what has to be a first — something a fan said. Now things are getting weird.

Following a pitch that Yankees starter Carlos Rodon threw to Athletics left fielder Tyler Nevin, home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt flipped his attention towards the New York dugout, ejecting Boone immediately who was left absolutely stunned.

In reaction, Boone went out to the field to confront Wendelstedt, and the microphones picked up a solid amount of the exchange.

“You got anything else to say, you’re gone,” Wendelstedt told Boone, after the Yankees skipper voiced his distaste about a previous call. In that play, it was ruled that Athletics center fielder Esteury Ruiz checked his swing when he was hit by a pitch from Rodon, and to make that situation even more tense, it was during an 0-2 count.

Boone listened to the ump and stayed quiet. However, he ended up getting ejected only seconds later after he and Wendelstedt’s original interaction.

“Aaron, you’re done.” Wendelstedt shot at the Yankees bullpen.

This is when Boone ran out of the dugout, explaining that he didn’t say anything and whatever was shouted came from the crowd.

“I don’t care who said it. You’re gone,” the ump responded amazingly.

And all hell broke loose from there.


And to the Yankees haters out there, Aaron ain’t lying … roll the footage.

I’m thinking some kind of suspension has to be handed down to this umpire, because what the hell?
