Boone picked by Yankees as next manager

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

The Yankees have reportedly named Aaron Boone as the team's new 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.

The New York Daily News' Bill Madden first relayed word of the Bronx Bombers' decision to hire the former ESPN analyst and Yankee third baseman, who became a pinstriped folk hero when he hit an 11th-inning, walk-off home run in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS against the Boston Red Sox.

Cashman said that while there was no flawless candidate, "We're looking for someone like we had before: someone that we can work with and collaborate with and connect with in good times and in bad".

The Yankees interviewed six candidates for the job.

That's good news because managing in NY is not an easy task-whether you're in the Bronx or even in Queens, you're constantly under the microscope.

Cashman made his recommendation to owner Hal Steinbrenner and a contract still has to be worked out. He injured his left knee while playing basketball during the following offseason, setting off a sequence of events that led to the Yankees' February 2004 trade for Alex Rodriguez.


Boone's grandfather, Ray, was a two-time All-Star infielder from 1948-60. "Being around great teams, great players, I've kind of lived this game".

The New York Yankees have apparently decided that the right fit is more important when it comes to their managerial vacancy. He had been at ESPN since his retirement as a player. "I've been going to the ballpark since I was 3 or 4 years old".

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

Boone's father has worked for the Washington Nationals since December 2004 and now is an assistant general manager.

On the sidelines of the Pac-12 championship game on Friday night stood USC product Aaron Boone, whose life-changing day added a cherry on top when his Trojans upended his father's alma mater, Stanford, for the school's first conference title in football in nine 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. "Certainly the expectations now will be ramped up even more after such a successful season and when you look at the roster that we're going to potentially have out there".
