It's definitely an out-of-the-box hire by the normally by-the-book Yankees, but Boone was so impressive in his interview on November 17 that general manager Brian Cashman recommended him to Hal Steinbrenner over other managerial candidates Rob Thomson, Eric Wedge, Chris Woodward, Carlos Betran and Hensley Meulens.
Boone added that while he doesn't have any previous experience as a manager, his status as a baseball lifer and son of former MLB catcher and manager Bob Boone helped prepare him for the gig.
Given the Yankees roster and their being set up for long-term success, Aaron Boone should continue the trend of winning baseball in the Bronx. And it's I think now more than ever more of a partnership from front office to manager. Boone became the first person with no experience as a manager or coach to interview to become Joe Girardi's successor with the New York Yankees, a job he has reportedly been given. "Certainly, it's fair to question my experience in actually doing the job, but I would say in a way I've been preparing for this job for the last 44 years".
Boone had a rather pedestrian career as a player but the highlight of his career came as a member of the Yankees. But he made his stay memorable, blasting a Tim Wakefield knuckleball into the left-field seats in the bottom of the 11th inning of Game 7 of the American League Championship Series, defeating the Boston Red Sox and sending the Yankees to the World Series. "I've been going to the ballpark since I was 3 or 4 years old".
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.
"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. "And then growing up where my dad was in the big leagues from the time I was born to the time I was in a senior in high school and being around great teams, great players, I've kind of lived this game as a kid", he said. And for the Yankees sake, he's the next manager to bring a championship back to NY.
