Yankees To Officially Introduce Aaron Boone As Manager

Yankees To Officially Introduce Aaron Boone As Manager

The author of one of the most memorable moments in Yankees postseason history, a deciding home run off Tim Wakefield that defeated the Red Sox in Game 7 of the 2003 American League Championship Series, Boone is the 18th Yankees manager to have played for the club and the first without any previous coaching or managerial experience since Hall of Fame catcher Bill Dickey in 1946.

Chief among his responsibilities so far has been to assemble a list of potential coaching staff candidates, both Cashman and Boone said. It feels like the chance of a lifetime for me.

"Obviously, this is a team with loads of talent, a team that in many ways came of age this year and arrived".

"The one thing I promise you guys is you'll get all I've got", Boone said.

"That's a respect you earn, and hopefully I think in short order I'll be able to earn that respect, that they'll be able to look at me, trust in me, know that I have their interest at heart, but know that hopefully I know what the heck I'm talking about", he said.

The Yankees announced Monday that pitching coach Larry Rothschild will return for his eighth season.

Joe Torre (12 seasons) and Girardi (10) are the only others to manage the Yankees since 1996.

Since his retirement as a player, Mendoza has spent time as a coach at Low-A Charleston and managed the Gulf Coast Yankees in 2011 before being promoted to manager of Charleston one year later. He was replaced at third base by Alex Rodriguez.

It's still entirely possible that Alan Cockrell and/or Marcus Thames return as hitting coaches and Tony Pena comes back to man the first base box, but remember that the organization granted Joe Girardi's entire coaching staff permission to seek employment elsewhere, following the disappointing ALCS loss to the Astros.

Former Yankees bench coach Rob Thomson moved to the Phillies for the same job.

Boone has given Cashman recommendations, the GM said. "I want to thank the Steinbrenner family to entrusting me with this position". He's served under some of the best managerial people in the game. And so I think he has a lot to offer (Boone) and now like anything else, we're going to collaborate with Aaron about who we have within the company that we would recommend for him to consider and then he has names to ask us to consider, so we've got to close the game on who they are and what they are and we've got interviews already lined up for that.
