Boone and Giants bench coach Hensley Meulins were said to be the two finalists for the job, but Giants beat writer Henry Schulman reported Meulins would not be leaving San Francisco.
What a gamble! The New York Yankees after an extensive search have named former Major League Baseball infielder Aaron Boone to be the just the 35th manager in the team's history.
Bret Boone also spent 14 years in the majors, while Aaron lasted a dozen, including a historic turn with the Yankees with a series-clinching home run against Boston in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS.
Boone said during the interview process that he didn't think his lack of managerial experience would be a deterrent. In 2003, he played in 55 regular-season games with the Bronx Bombers and was part of the squad that lost to the Marlins in that year's World Series. His father, Bob, was a four-time All-Star catcher from 1972-90, then managed Kansas City from 1995-97 and Cincinnati from 2001-03.
It could be a short honeymoon with the rest of Yankees Universe if things get off to a bumpy start in the standings, but "I know what I would be signing up for, " Boone said in mid-November. "I've been going to the ballpark since I was 3 or 4 years old".
Aaron Boone has the natural people skills to win over the Yankees clubhouse, his dad says.

Boone had never interviewed previously for a manager opening.
As the new Yankees manager, Boone is committed to the 2017 version of a manager who embraces analytics and sees his office as "an extension of the front office".
Cashman indicated that there would be no further interviews, but it would seem likely that Steinbrenner would want to meet with the final choice or both candidates before giving his approval.
"And I very much think that my job as manager would be to forge really strong relationships where these players understand that me and my staff are going to really care about them, that they're going to be able to trust us". Brian Cashman is banking on a former player turned manager to become the next in line to have that same kind of success.
