Yankees tab Boone as new manager

Yankees tab Boone as new manager

Boone, who famously hit an ALCS Game 7 home run against the Red Sox that propelled the Yankees into the 2003 World Series, doesn't have any coaching or managerial experience at any level and has spent the past seven years as a broadcaster with ESPN.

"I think for him, gosh, being picked for his first job being the New York Yankees, which is probably the premium job of any sport in the world, is quite something".

Five days after NY lost to Houston in Game 7 of the AL Championship Series, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman announced October 26 that Girardi was not being offered a new contract after 10 years, one World Series title and a 910-710 regular-season record.

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

Boone had never interviewed previously for a manager opening.

During his teleconference after interviewing for the Yankees' managerial opening, Aaron Boone talked about forging strong relationships with his players, based on trust. Boone's walk-off home run in Game 7 of the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox sent NY to the World Series and extended Boston's "Curse of the Bambino".

"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".

"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. "I knew I had no chance with Stanford against Aaron and USC on that day". Boone told reporters after his interview that he's been preparing for this job "for 44 years".

Bob Boone was speaking from a Little League field in San Diego, where his twin grandsons - the children of Aaron's brother, Bret - were playing in a travel baseball game, perhaps on their way to extending the family's already unprecedented three-generation lineage in the sport.

That last part might be one of the main differences between Boone and the man he replaces, Joe Girardi, though we won't know for sure until he start managing some games. Sources said Carlos Beltran was informed he would not be the manager.

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.

This Yankees team is on the rise and ready to compete for championships. "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".
