During a certain period of Boone's career, he was welcomed to the plate by his own fans with a loud "boo." This was, of course, a play on his last name, and was a positive cheer rather than a heckle.


Boone's claim to fame is his 11th inning home run during Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS which gave the New York Yankees a 6-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees won the game and the series on the home run, thus prolonging the Sox' Curse of the Bambino for one more year.

On February 27, 2004, Boone was cut from the Yankee roster after tearing a knee ligament during a pick-up basketball game played in violation of his contract with the Yankees. He was replaced at third base by former Texas Rangers shortstop Alex Rodriguez. Since the Yankees would most likely not have tried to obtain Rodriguez if Boone had not been injured, it has been jokingly dubbed by some as the most important basketball injury in the history of baseball. During the 2004 season, the Yankees expressed an interest in re-signing Boone to play second base in 2005, replacing Enrique Wilson and Miguel Cairo, but Boone instead signed a two-year contract with the Cleveland Indians. is the 58th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ...
