Yanks choose Boone as next manager

Yanks choose Boone as next manager

Fast forward to 14 years later and Boone will be once again donning the Yankee pinstripes as the manager and will be taking over a team loaded with talent.

Given the Yankees roster and their being set up for long-term success, Aaron Boone should continue the trend of winning baseball in the Bronx.

A corner infielder who batted.263 during his 12-year Major League career, Boone played part of the 2003 season with the Yankees.

Boone gained the credibility to work at ESPN by virtue of having a 13-year Major League career that included stints with the Reds, Yankees, Indians, Marlins, Nationals and Astros.

Aaron Boone secured his place in New York Yankees lore with one of the most indelible home runs in franchise history. "I think that's something that many of us relish in - the opportunity to have something on the line and a lot at stake is, I think, something that makes you want to go after it".

The Yankees made it to the seventh game of the American League Championship Series a little ahead of schedule, so Boone will be working with a young and hungry team which got its first taste of playoff baseball.

During the family's statement, the girl held her father, Rodd Frisina, closely and nestled under his chin, eyes closed. Rodriguez and the teen had been around each other "at sports events, but they've never been alone at all", Smith said.

Boone's time with the Yankees as a player wasn't very long; he broke his leg playing a pickup game of basketball; an injury that led to the trade of Alex Rodriguez in February of 2004. It was a bit of a surprise but he was Brian Cashman's choice.

Cashman said he had grown concerned about Girardi's ability to connect with a young roster, and in Boone, he chose a candidate who has always been known as a skilled communicator.

Interviews are over and the Yankees will pick between the six candidates who have already interviewed for the job - Aaron Boone, Hensley Meulens, Carlos Beltran, Eric Wedge, Rob Thompson and Chris Woodward. After his job interview, Boone said he grasped the demands.

"It's just understanding what it is to be a Yankee, what it is to play here and just understanding the expectations that go with it".

"He definitely recognizes how much it's changed over the last couple years, five years, 10 years, to where - especially with analytics these days, it's a different job", Aaron Boone said.

Thomson, who had spent 28 seasons in the Yankees' organization, most recently as the bench coach, is finalizing a deal to fill that role for the Philadelphia Phillies.
