New York Yankees Decide on Aaron Boone as Manager

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

Boone, who starred at Villa Park High before a 12-year career in the major leagues, has been an ESPN baseball analyst since 2010.

More and more, managers are hired with little to no experience in the job.

The New York Daily News was the first to report the hiring. "In a way, I've been preparing for this job my entire life. He certainly connected with me about what his thoughts are and the types of people he thinks we should play on".

The Yankees signed Boone to return as their third baseman in 2004, but when he tore his anterior cruciate ligament playing basketball that January, the team traded for Alex Rodriguez and cut Boone, costing him most of his $5.75 million salary.

Boone's grandfather, Ray, father, Bob, and brother, Bret, all played in the Majors, and his father managed the Reds (1995-97) and Royals (2001-03). "Especially the last few years, I find myself managing games all the time and thinking about strategies and how I would handle different situations". To replace Joe Girardi as the Yankees' head man in the dugout, Boone had to beat out five other serious candidates, including ex-MLB manager Eric Wedge, and recently retired (and probable future Hall of Famer) Carlos Beltran.

On Friday night, the Yankees selected Boone to be the 35th manager in franchise history.

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.

U.S. shopping season starts with record high online sales
Average spend per person over the five-day period was $335.47, with $250.78, or about 75%, going toward gifts, according to NRF. More than 58 million people only shopped online during the long weekend, compared to 51 million who only shopped in stores.

"It's a great place to work", Cashman said.

Also, when it appeared to come down to Hensley Meulens and Aaron Boone, I expected Meulens to be the Yankees' choice. That's a good thing, because Aaron Boone doesn't have any. Thomson, who had been in the Yankees' organization for 28 seasons, plans to accept a bench coach position with the Phillies, while Beltran has said that he is looking forward to spending time at home with his family.

Whatever their relationship with Girardi, those players helped the Yankees win the top AL wild card spot and make a deep playoff run, a rapid rise for a team that seemed to be in transition.

Four of the six candidates who interviewed for the job at Yankee Stadium have ties with the team.

"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 said.

Both Boone and Meulens have Yankee backgrounds.
