In baseball history, there were some epic screeching competitions between managers and umpires, but this one was cruel.
Aaron Boone, manager of the New York Yankees, threw a series of F-bombs on the home plate referee of rookie Brennan Miller on Thursday afternoon. and defended his thugs by calling them "savages in the box".
This happened after Miller called a strike against Yankees' Brett Gardner at the opening whistle of the opener of a double header against Yankee Stadium's Tampa Bay Rays. 19659003] DAVID PRICE, DENNIS ECKERSLEY FEUD, RUNS AFTER AIRCRAFT CASES
Returning to the dugout area, Gardner returned to the dugout and began beating his bat around the dugout nine times against the racket rack and eight times against the roof of the dungeon, the Associated Press said.
Meanwhile Boone screamed at the umpire, complaining that the third strike against Gardner was out.
"I heard you, Aaron," cried a visibly angry Miller as a microphone caught the entire interaction on the face of the referee, who accused the referee of not being particularly keen with his ball-and-strike calls ,
"My boys are f —— Wild in this f —— box, right? And you have a little s — start with this game .I feel bad for you, but f —— be better, "said boone. "Put it on now, OK?"
