Aaron Boone knows he has to convince players he can manage

During his time with the team from 2008-2017, NY had the best record in all of baseball. He joined ESPN in 2007 after nine years at the New York Post.

One introductory theme was Boone's role in vaulting the Yankees from their surprising ALCS appearance to "the next level". The Cardinals, who were coming off a World Series win in 2011, didn't hesitate to give him the job.

"It's certainly something that I'm known for in my baseball life, obviously, and in some way probably is a contributor to me being here today", he said. "With the New York Yankees, we are chasing championships. I think when that happens, you're going to put yourself in position to be successful come October".

Aaron Boone speaks to the media after being introduced as manager of the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium on December 6, 2017 in the Bronx borough of New York City.

Aaron Boone was pulling into the driveway of his home in Scottsdale, Arizona, last Thursday, bringing 8-year-old daughter Bella home from school so his wife could drive her to a dance lesson, and he noticed a missed call from Brian Cashman.

"Winning world championships", Steinbrenner said. "For a long time, I kind of distanced myself from it because we lost the World Series. And I expect that we will have a very good run".

"He took a chance on me back in 1998, and here I am 20 years later", Cashman said. "It is a long-term effort".

In 2009, Boone underwent open heart surgery to replace an aortic valve. Before then, Boone and Cashman will decide on the rest of his coaching staff, which so far only includes holdover Larry Rothschild, the team's pitching coach.

Boone was a major-league infielder for 12 seasons.

Boone beat out a field of five other contenders, which included Giants bench coach Hensley Meulens, now-Phillies bench coach Rob Thomson, former manager Eric Wedge, Los Angeles Dodgers coach Chris Woodward and the just-retired Carlos Beltran.

"For some of the guys involved, it wasn't even close", Steinbrenner said.

"Clearly, he just went through two to three hours of grilling, the Cashman scenarios and lineup questions and everything else", Steinbrenner said.

Boone has already begun the process of reaching out to his players via calls and texts, having spoken "to a handful" of Yankees. "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 past year, I understand what I signed up for". That's part of it.

Though he only played one year for the Yanks, he'll always be remembered fondly-as the man whose 11th-inning home run in Game 7 of the 2003 American League Championship Series staved off the Red Sox once again, and prolonged the Curse of the Bambino for one more season. He is very much looking forward to going up against his friend, Boston manager Alex Cora.
