Aaron Boone's 'f--king savages' tirade at home plate umpire Brennan Miller on Thursday will cost the Yankees manager a game.
MLB announced on Friday that Boone has received a one-game suspension and undisclosed fine for his "inappropriate actions, including contact" with Miller in the second inning of Thursday's first game of a doubleheader against the Rays.
The announcement was made by Joe Torre, the Chief Baseball Officer for Major League Baseball and former Yankees manager.
Boone will serve his suspension on Friday when the Yankees host the Colorado Rockies.
Miller ejected Boone for arguing balls and strikes after Brett Gardner struck out and was unhappy with the strike zone, slamming his bat into the rack and banging the roof of the dugout with it. Boone took that frustration a step further and got himself ejected.
Boone ran onto the field screaming and pointing his finger in Miller's face.
"My guys are f--king savages in that f--king box and you're having a piece of s--t game start to this game," Boone is heard yelling.
It appeared during Boone's tirade the bill of his cap may have bumped into Miller's cap.
Boone said afterward he felt it was a big game and that it needed to be known things were not going their way early.
"Sometimes in the heat of the battle you just feel you just utter some things," he said. "But I feel that way about our guys, no doubt."
