Tomorrow the New York Yankees will introduce Aaron Boone as their new manager at noon (Eastern Time). It’s reported as 3-year deal. The press conference will be live on yankees.com and streaming live from their Facebook page.The 44-year old Boone, has never managed before. However, he played his first game in the MLB on June 20, 1997 (Cincinnati Reds) and his last game on October 4, 2009 (Houston Astros). Since retiring from baseball, Boone never really stepped away from it. He became an analyst for ESPN, and has been calling baseball games since. This could be a good selling point for Boone, because he’s got to see the Yankees and other teams. Constantly doing analysis of all teams and seeing what’s working for teams.
Let’s also not forget the reason Boone is a beloved Yankee. His time was short in New York, but he made history before leaving. It was game 7 of the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox. Boone hit a walk-off homer in the bottom of the 11th inning to give the Yankees a 6-5 win.
