Aaron Boone’s ‘savages’ comment catching on with Yankees

Aaron Boone umpire

Aaron Boone’s rant at an umpire during and after an ejection on Thursday went viral, with one particular comment catching on.

Boone was ejected from the first game of a doubleheader between his New York Yankees and the Tampa Bay Rays for arguing about umpire Brennan Miller’s strike zone. After being tossed by Miller, Boone ran onto the field to let the umpire have it.

“My guys are f—ing savages inside that f—ing box,” Boone told Miller.

Boone then repeated the “savages in the box” remark a few more times.

The quote was so catchy that it’s been put on T-shirts already. Yankees first baseman Luke Voit said he is a fan of it.

“He’s been calling us savages all year,” Voit said. “We’ve had that mentality since spring training and it’s pretty cool. Not a lot of coaches would use that type of word but I think we appreciate it. We are a bunch of savages.”

The Yankees were all-in on savages and were playing some savage-related music in between games.

Get ready for “savages” to become the rallying cry for the 2019 Yankees.
