Here's what the umpire had to say

NEW YORK — Aaron Boone was ejected from Monday afternoon's game after someone in the most expensive box seat yelled at an umpire at Yankee Stadium.

Getting fired is nothing new for the Yankees manager, but this one is unique.

Just two batters into the game, plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt threw him out of the game with a dazed cat, and the Yankees eventually lost 2–0 to the Oakland Athletics.

Afterward, Boone called Wendelstedt's actions “embarrassing … not good.”

Speaking to a pool reporter after the game, Wendelstedt gave a different account, saying, “I heard something coming from the far end of the (Yankees) dugout,” and it had nothing to do with “(Boone's) area.”
