Cameron Maybin accuses umpire Ben May of instigating ejections

Cameron Maybin was the batter who struck out looking on a questionable call, resulting in the series of events that got manager Aaron Boone and teammates Brett Gardner and CC Sabathia ejected. After the game, Maybin had his say, accusing plate umpire Ben May of “egging it on” and staring into the dugout. Maybin also decried the lack of accountability, noting that May would not have to answer for his actions to the media like players do.
