Yankees Name Aaron Boone Next Manager

  • J.Lo Tried To Shoot Her Shot To Get A-Rod The Yankees' Manager Job With This IG Post

Boone isn't going directly from playing to managing and he's had some time away from the everyday grind of the long baseball season, but he's been around the game since childhood.

More and more, managers are hired with little to no experience in the job.

Of course, Red Sox fans remember Boone for his iconic walk-off homer to send the Yankees to the World Series in 2003.

One thing Boone does seem to have in spades is the personality to both deal with a relatively young Yankees team and thrive in the spotlight of the NY media. "But I would also say in a way, I've been preparing for this job for my entire life". He tore a knee ligament during a pickup basketball game in the offseason after his home run off Boston's Tim Wakefield and was released by NY, which replaced him by acquiring Alex Rodriguez. Hopefully, Aaron will have more managerial success than his father, as Bob never led a team to an above-.500 record in six seasons.

Neither Boone nor Meulens have ever managed in the big leagues.

During the interview process, Cashman consulted with Alex Rodriguez, but the former Yankee was not a candidate.


General manager Brian Cashman cited "communication and connectivity" as important prerequisites when the Yankees parted ways with Joe Girardi after a decade with him at the helm. He said Cashman contacted him about succeeding Girardi, whose contract was not renewed despite the Yankees' surprising surge to the ALCS. Will Aaron Boone be able to take NY to the next step and bring home a 28th Commissioner's Trophy? Thomson, who had been in the Yankees' organization for 28 seasons, plans to accept a bench coach position with the Phillies, while Beltran has said that he is looking forward to spending time at home with his family.

It could be a short honeymoon with the rest of Yankees Universe if things get off to a bumpy start in the standings, but "I know what I would be signing up for, " Boone said in mid-November.

"I understand what it is to be a Yankee", he said.

The team interviewed six candidates total: recently retired outfielder Carlos Beltran; longtime Yankees coach Rob Thomson; former big league manager Eric Wedge; and Dodgers third base coach Chris Woodward.

"I've been going to the ballpark since I was 3 and 4 years old, and in a way managing the game from a very young age", Boone said.

Boone had a rather pedestrian career as a player but the highlight of his career came as a member of the Yankees.
