Yankees name ’03 ALCS hero Aaron Boone new skipper

Aaron Boone has already helped the Yankees advance to one World Series. Now they want him to lead the franchise to its next one.

Boone has been selected as the 33rd manager in franchise history, the Yankees announced Monday, concluding a managerial search that spanned five weeks. Boone’s contract is for three years, with a club option for 2021. An introductory news conference is scheduled for Wednesday at noon ET.

“Words cannot express how humbled I am to wear the pinstripes again as the manager of the Yankees,” said Boone. “I want to thank the Steinbrenner family and [general manager] Brian Cashman for entrusting me with this tremendous honor and responsibility. I believe we are entering into a special time in New York Yankees history, and I am so excited to be a part of it. I can’t wait to get to work — and that work starts now.”
