New York Yankees: Aaron Boone calls manager job 'chance of a lifetime'

New York Yankees: Aaron Boone calls manager job 'chance of a lifetime'

"The game's been calling, it's been pulling at me", Boone said. "I feel like one of my strengths is the person I am, regardless of what's going on around me". Boone has never managed or coached at any level, working as a broadcaster since last season after retiring as a player in 2009.

His new boss, Hal Steinbrenner, sounded decidedly old school, though, when asked how he would define success over the length of Boone's three-year contract that includes a team option for a fourth season.

Boone was offered a three year contract as the Yankees new manager after the team dismissed Joe Girardi.

"Baseball is a game, " said Teixeira, who, like Boone, went straight from the field to ESPN.

NY also interviewed Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson, former Cleveland and Seattle manager Eric Wedge, San Francisco bench coach Hensley Meulens, Los Angeles Dodgers third base coach Chris Woodward and former Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran, who retired as a player after winning his first World Series this year with Houston. He has been in the booth as an analyst for ESPN since his retirement.

Joe Torre (12 seasons) and Girardi (10) are the only others to manage the Yankees since 1996. "When you look at our roster, when you look at the young players we have, when you look at the farm system we have, when you look at the success they enjoyed previous year, I understand what I signed up for". "When we had the opportunity to speak with Aaron and share concepts and ideas, he was able to showcase a variety of traits that we believe will strongly benefit this franchise as we move forward, including an astute mind for the game and a progressive approach to evolving strategies", general manager Brian Cashman said in a statement. Steinbrenner said Cashman and the front office had "worked hard on scouting" Otani this past year and had done "a great job with the presentation we put together" for Otani's CAA representatives.

A transition to professional wrestling wouldn't be surprising for Rousey. "I don't want to see it happen". Baszler began her MMA career in 2003 and has competed in a total of 26 fights with a record of 15-11.

"It was long, it was tough, it was so fun", Boone said.

"You at least have to think about it if I was approached about it", the former Yankees star told WFAN's Mike Francesa on Wednesday. I want to get lost into the process. I don't want to get caught up in that personally and I don't think I will. "Then it was hyper-focused on going from how can we get the Yankees better".

Boone is best known for his home run in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS that helped the Yankees beat the Boston Red Sox and reach the World Series. Not a Hall of Famer by any stretch, but he was selected for an All-Star Game in 2003 and later that year hit one of the most famous postseason home runs in Major League Baseball history.

The 33rd manager of the New York Yankees will wear number 17. He is a third-generation major leaguer with his grandfather (Ray Boone), his father (Bob) and his brother (Bret). "But, again, when you talk about Yankees and pinstripes ..."

Boone said he had already been in communication with many current roster members after getting hired, including Sanchez.

"In some ways, " Boone said, "it probably is a contributor to me being here today". "That's something that you have to earn over the initial days in spring training, in the season".
