Aaron Boone to be named Yankees manager

Aaron Boone to be named Yankees manager

Aaron Boone, who played 54 games with the New York Yankees in 2003, will reportedly be the 35th manager in club history.

Boone did play for the Yankees in a short but memorable stint during his 13-year Major League Baseball career. "Obviously, they were able to accomplish a lot. Hopefully I can be a part of helping them take it to another level".

After all, the longer the Yankees' managerial search lasts, the more A-Rod's name might come up. Steinbrenner had previously said he was reluctant to have a manager with no experience in the job.

Boone, who played a full year in Billings in 1994, is just the second Mustang to become a major league manager.

Boone and Giants bench coach Hensley Meulins were said to be the two finalists for the job, but Giants beat writer Henry Schulman reported Meulins would not be leaving San Francisco.

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.

If you get the flu, get antiviral drugs started within 48 hours and stay home at least 24 hours after your fever is gone. You should also wash your hands, and be careful of items like door knobs and sell phones which collect bacteria .

As the new Yankees manager, Boone is committed to the 2017 version of a manager who embraces analytics and sees his office as "an extension of the front office". Hopefully, Aaron will have more managerial success than his father, as Bob never led a team to an above-.500 record in six seasons.

"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". "My dad was in the big leagues from the time I was born to a senior in high school". "There's a lot to consider and there's a lot of great information out there that is instilled into the game today".

Boone remains a fan favorite in NY - and, like Bucky Dent, will always carry an alternative middle name in Boston - because of that one big swing in the 2003 ALCS. He tore a knee ligament during a pickup basketball game in the offseason after his home run off Boston's Tim Wakefield and was released by NY, which replaced him by acquiring Alex Rodriguez.

That hire was first broken by The New York Daily News, and was later confirmed by ESPN. This would include just 54 games with the Yankees.

He added, "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. I know what I would be signing up for". His grandfather Ray was a major league third baseman and his brother Bret was a four-time All-Star.
