Marlins manager in disbelief after getting Aaron Boone’d

Skip Schumaker cannot believe it

Miami Marlins manager Skip Schumaker on Tuesday nearly suffered the same fate New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone did last month.

Boone was ejected from the Yankees’ April 22 contest against the Oakland Athletics at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, N.Y. The scene went viral because the Yankees skipper got thrown out for something a fan had said.

Schumaker felt Boone’s pain for a brief moment during Tuesday’s game between the Marlins and the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in Detroit, Mich.

With two outs in the top of the second inning, Schumaker seemingly got tossed by home plate umpire Ben May despite barely saying a word.

The Marlins manager was understandably distraught and pleaded his case to May. Schumaker waved his arms around as if to try to pin whatever was said on someone else.

May eventually listened. Schumaker’s ejection was reversed and bench coach Luis Urueta was thrown out in his place.

Urueta also had a lengthy discussion with the umpires before leaving the dugout. Urueta may have simply served as the fall guy just so Schumaker wouldn’t be the one thrown out.

The early ejection may have motivated Marlins starting pitcher Ryan Weathers. The left-hander threw eight scoreless innings and was perfect through five to fuel a 1-0 Marlins win over the Tigers.
