Aaron Boone’s Rate of Ejections Is Embarrassing ... And Historically Significant

How foolish does Boone look by getting thrown out so often? Boone has been ejected more times in his six years (30) than Dusty Baker has in his 26 years managing (25). He has been ejected more in the past 1​​⅓ seasons (13) than Dave Roberts has in his nine seasons (10). His place on this list says it all:

Boone gets thrown out more often than anybody in the past 62 years. It is crazy that Boone is getting thrown out more often than Weaver did. The Earl of Baltimore feuded so often with umpires he was thrown out of both games of a doubleheader—three times. He was the first manager thrown out of a World Series game. His feud with umpire Ron Luciano was so legendary the AL stopped scheduling Luciano to work Orioles games. When an umpire once offered to show Weaver his rule book to explain a call, Weaver shot back, “That’s no good. I can’t read Braille.”

And yet Boone—without the need to argue any call on the bases—gets thrown out more often than Weaver.
