Former MLB player and current New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone is no stranger to being ejected from games. Whether he's gotten in verbal altercations with umpires or caused a ruckus on the sidelines, Boone has been kicked out of games more than a dozen times in the past two years alone.

On April 22, Boone was ejected from a Yankees game once again, but unlike his first ejection of the season earlier this month, it happened after Boone didn't say a word.

It started when Boone was upset after a ball hit Oakland Athletics player Esteury Ruiz on the foot. Boone and the Yankees in the dugout believed that he swung at the ball, and Boone was upset by the call. Plate umpire Hunter Wendelsteldt fired back at his disapproval.

"You're not yelling at me," Wendelstedt yelled at Boone, the entire confrontation captured on the live broadcast. "I did what I was supposed to do and checked. I'm looking for him to get hit by the pitch."

"You got anything else to say, you're gone, okay?" Wendelsteldt threatened. One pitch later, Boone was promptly kicked out after the umpire heard jeers from Boone's direction while the manager himself was looking away and silent.

"You're done! You're gone!" Wendelsteldt yelled, leading Boone to pop off in response and explain that it was a fan behind the dugout that called out the umpire.

"I don't care who said it," Wendelstedt insisted. "You're gone."

"What do you mean you don't care?" Boone retorted. "I did not say a word. It was up above our dugout. Bulls--t! Bulls--t! I didn't say anything. I did not say anything, Hunter. I didn't say a f--king thing."

With two ejections this early into the season, Boone could challenge his record of nine in one season by the time it's over. To date, he's racked up 35 ejections since 2018, making him the most-ejected manager in the MLB.
