HISTORY: UMPIRE BUCKNOR AND THE YANKEES

Apr 16, 2005: Kansas City manager (now Yank 1st base coach) Tony Pena, left, yells at home plate umpire C.B. Bucknor after he was ejected during a game against Detroit. Pena was tossed for arguing balls and strikes.

March 5, 2005:
Baltimore Orioles manager (now Yank bench coach) Lee Mazzilli, center, stands between umpire C.B. Bucknor and Sammy Sosa (21) after Sosa is ejected in the second inning during their game with the Washington Nationals.


Sheffield was ejected after being called out at first base by umpire C.B. Bucknor in Sunday's game against the Mets at Yankee Stadium. Sheffield threw his helmet after he was called out, and replays showed he appeared to beat the throw. Sheffield was suspended for 2 games by MLB's judge and jury Bob Watson. He also fined Sheffield $2,000.

"I think Bob Watson's decision was completely wrong," Yankees president Randy Levine said. "He totally missed the point that this whole incident was precipitated by a now-known erroneous call at first base and an overreaction by the umpire, who prematurely ejected Gary Sheffield.
