Aaron Boone was ejected before high noon, and Luis Severino was solid enough in his return to a Major League mound as the Yankees took down the Reds 4-1 in Cincinnati, Sunday.

Boone was ejected in the bottom of the first inning for arguing about Red DH Jonathan India scoring on a botched fly ball by Jake Bauers, that was reviewed and ruled in the Reds favor, stating that the ball was in fair territory rather than foul territory. Boone was upset the umpires allowed India to score all the way from first.

According to the New York Post: “First-base umpire Nestor Ceja had signaled that it was a foul ball, so Bauers did not have any reason to quickly get to his feet after the sliding attempt and try to throw home to get India.”

Review determined it was a fair ball, and a double.

It was the first time a manager had been ejected before 12 noon.

Boone wasn’t alone getting the heave-ho. Red manager David Bell was also ejected in the eighth inning for arguing the Yankees reliever Wandy Peralta used a quick pitch.

By the way, this was also the return to the majors for Luis Severino. After missing the start to the 2023 season and rehabbing in Somerset this past week, Severino was solid, holding the Reds to a single run on four hits over 4.2 innings with five strikeouts. He threw 75 pitches.

Harrison Bader hit his fourth home run of the year since returning from the IL to put the Yankees up 2-1. Gleyber Torres would follow with a solo shot of his own in the sixth. Anthony Volpe drove in his 19th run of the year on an RBI-double in the seventh.

Reactions to the Passing of Football Legend Jim Brown

Reactions are pouring in in remembrance of NFL Hall of Famer and actor Jim Brown, who passed away peacefully on Thursday night. He was 87.

Brown’s wife Monique made the announcement on her Instagram saying, “”To the world he was an activist, actor, and football star. To our family he was a loving and wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. Our hearts are broken…”

A three-time League MVP, Brown played only nine years in the National Football League from 1957-65, all with the Cleveland Browns, and was considered one of, if not, the best football players of all time. Brown averaged an astounding 5.2 yards per carry, and led a League predicated and dedicated to the run in eight of his nine years.

A Syracuse University alum, Brown ran for 12,312 yards in the NFL and was a Pro Bowler every year. He was also a member of the Browns last NFL Championship in 1964.

After his retirement, Brown went into acting, appearing in more than 30 films, most famously as Raymound Jefferson in the 1967 World War II action thriller The Dirty Dozen.

Brown was also well known for his activism in the Civil Rights movement.
