Aaron Boone Walks into Perfect Job as Next New York Yankees Manager

New York Yankees former 3rd baseman Alex Rodriguez

Since retiring from baseball in 2010, Boone has been an analyst for ESPN, appearing on Monday Night Baseball, Baseball Tonight, and most recently Sunday Night Baseball.

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.

Yet here they are with Aaron Boone and Mickey Callway, two fresh-faced skippers with no managerial experience. 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.

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

There are not that many things that most fans of major league baseball know about Aaron Boone, who on Friday was hired to be the New York Yankees manager. And it's I think now more than ever more of a partnership from front office to manager. In Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS, Boone broke a 5-5 tie in the bottom of the 11th inning and cracked a solo home run to left field off Tim Wakefield and helped send the Yankees to the World Series by beating the Boston Red Sox. His grandfather Ray Boone was an infielder for six teams from 1948 through 1960. and his father, Bob, was one of the most durable catchers in major league history, lasting from 1972 through 1990.

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

Cashman said that while there was no ideal 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".

"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", Boone said.

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

As for A-Rod, "I engaged him, " Cashman said. Rob Thomson, who had been with the Yankees for almost three decades and most recently was Joe Girardi's bench coach, is expected to move to the Philadelphia Phillies to be Gabe Kapler's bench coach, sources said.
