Aaron Boone to be named next manager of Yankees

Former Billings Mustang Aaron Boone will be named the next manager of the New York Yankees, according to sources Friday night, despite having zero previous managerial experience at any level.

During the interviews, the candidates took a break to speak with the media via conference call, allowing Cashman and his lieutenants to gauge how they would fare during news conferences.

ESPN's Buster Olney confirmed the hire.

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

The Yankees interviewed six candidates for the job.

Boone isn't going directly from playing to managing and he's had some time away from the everyday grind of the long baseball season, but he's been around the game since childhood. "Being around great teams, great players, I've kind of lived this game".

The 44-year-old Boone is certainly no stranger to the Yankee fan base, as he hit one of the most memorable home runs in postseason history. Just like Joe Girardi, Aaron Boone is another former Yankee player to become a manager.

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. He tore a knee ligament in a pickup basketball game during the 2003-04 offseason and was released by the Yankees, who replaced him by acquiring Alex Rodriguez.

Aaron Boone said on November 17 that he believes that time with the Yankees could help him prepare for this job, which certainly comes with its share of expectations.

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

And now, Bob and Aaron Boone will become just the fourth father/son duo to both manage in Major League Baseball, joining Connie and Earle Mack, George and Dick Sisler, and Bob and Joel Skinner.

Owner Hal Steinbrenner said last month a lack of managing and coaching experience was a concern but not an insurmountable hurdle.

This team will head into the season with World Series expectations. I think the front office has always given the Yankees the greatest chance to succeed.

The decision was down to Boone and Meulens after they, plus Beltran, gave the most impressive interviews, Bill Madden of the New York Daily News reports.

Cashman added: "He never expressed interest in any way, shape or form".

"I think for him, gosh, being picked for his first job being the New York Yankees, which is probably the premium job of any sport in the world, is quite something".
