Boone picked by Yankees as next manager

Yankees Reportedly Tap Boone As New Manager AP

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

While Boone is a long-time former player, he's stepping onto the bench for the first time as a coach in any kind of capacity; he's spent the last several years as a broadcaster for ESPN, working the Sunday Night Baseball games.

ESPN's Buster Olney confirmed the hire.

Boone said he had interviewed for front office and coaching roles in recent years, but never for a manager's job.

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported Meulens was the other finalist for the job.

In a conference call with reporters on November 17, after his interview with the Yankees, Boone said he would relish the high-pressure job of managing the storied franchise. Sources said Carlos Beltran was informed he would not be the manager.

"I know what I would be signing up for", Boone said.

A popular clubhouse presence during his playing career, Boone has been a television analyst since his retirement in 2009, giving him considerable exposure to the ocean of advanced statistics that have become vitally important in overseeing a big league game. The Yankees, who in spring training, were picked to finish in fourth place and were considered a rebuilding team, ended up winning 91 games, knocked off the American League Champion Cleveland Indians and then took the eventual World Series Champion Houston Astros to a seventh game.

"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.

The Yankees let former manager Joe Girardi, 53, go after their season ended in October when team GM Brian Cashman recommended to owner Hal Steinbrenner that the pinstriped ones find a new leader.

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

"Obviously, experience is very valuable and should be a check mark for somebody", Boone said.

This story was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs. "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".

The New York Daily News was the first to report the hiring. "He never expressed interest in any way, shape or form in it".
