Now, at 44, he can build on that legacy as a rookie manager for the team.

Boone will be named the team's next manager, multiple media outlets reported Friday night. That person also spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision was not announced.

As such, Cashman said that he was prepared to make his recommendation to managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner, which turned out to be Boone.

Boone, who starred at Villa Park High before a 12-year career in the major leagues, has been an ESPN baseball analyst since 2010. Rob Thomson, who had been with the Yankees for almost three decades and most recently was Joe Girardi's bench coach, is expected to move to the Philadelphia Phillies to be Gabe Kapler's bench coach, sources said. Boone will be replacing the recently fired Joe Girardi. Boone has not been in uniform since retiring as a player eight years ago, but his hiring continues a trend around the majors. "Certainly, it's fair to question my experience in actually doing the job, but I would say in a way I've been preparing for this job for the last 44 years". "And it's I think now more than ever more of a partnership from front office to manager".

The pennant winners from the past two seasons - the Houston Astros, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians - are among the teams that lean heavily on this dynamic.

The New York Daily News, one of several outlets reporting the move, said Yankees officials were attracted to Boone's "polish".

"I've been going to the ballpark since I was 3 and 4 years old, and in a way managing the game from a very young age".

Boone's grandfather, Ray, father, Bob, and brother, Bret, all played in the Majors, and his father managed the Reds (1995-97) and Royals (2001-03). All of the Boone's played in one or more MLB All-Star Games. But he made his stay memorable, blasting a Tim Wakefield knuckleball into the left-field seats in the bottom of the 11th inning of Game 7 of the American League Championship Series, defeating the Boston Red Sox and sending the Yankees to the World Series. He tore a knee ligament in a pickup basketball game during the 2003-04 offseason and was released by the Yankees, who replaced him by acquiring Alex Rodriguez. After a month of searching, interviews, and speculation, the 35th manager of the Yankees will be none other than Aaron Bleepin' Boone.

Cashman said that while there was no flawless candidate, "We're looking for someone like we had before: someone that we can work with and collaborate with and connect with in good times and in bad". Thomson, who had been in the Yankees' organization for 28 seasons, plans to accept a bench coach position with the Phillies, while Beltran has said that he is looking forward to spending time at home with his family.

Fortunately, Beltran's baseball mind could still be with the Yankees in some capacity next year. That's a good thing, because Aaron Boone doesn't have any.

"I understand what it is to be a Yankee", he said.
