According to New York Daily News, the New York Yankees have named Aaron Boone their new manager.

And now, Bob and Aaron Boone will become just the fourth father/son duo to both manage in Major League Baseball, joining Connie and Earle Mack, George and Dick Sisler, and Bob and Joel Skinner.

Boone, who famously hit an ALCS Game 7 home run against the Red Sox that propelled the Yankees into the 2003 World Series, doesn't have any coaching or managerial experience at any level and has spent the past seven years as a broadcaster with ESPN. Cashman later said he was concerned over "ability to fully engage, communicate, connect with the playing personnel".

In a conference call with reporters on November 17, after his interview with the Yankees, Boone said he would relish the high-pressure job of managing the storied franchise. "In a way, I've been preparing for this job my entire life".

Boone's career with NY was brief. It should be fascinating to see if Brian Cashman and Hal Steinbrenner are making the right move.

As manager of the Yankees, Boone will be under a microscope and very little will remain unknown about him starting today.

By blowing out his left knee in a January 2004 pickup basketball game, Boone accidentally started the A-Rod Era in pinstripes; trading for Alex Rodriguez became the Yankees' solution to their sudden third base vacancy. His grandfather Ray Boone was an infielder for six teams from 1948 through 1960. and his father, Bob, was one of the most durable catchers in major league history, lasting from 1972 through 1990.

"I understand what it is to be a Yankee", he said. He has worked at Newsday since August 31, 1998, and has been in his current position since July 5, 2004.

"He definitely recognizes how much it's changed over the last couple years, five years, 10 years, to where - especially with analytics these days, it's a different job", Aaron Boone said. "And then growing up where my dad was in the big leagues from the time I was born to the time I was in a senior in high school and being around great teams, great players, I've kind of lived this game as a kid", he said. "I think that's something that many of us relish in - the opportunity to have something on the line and a lot at stake is, I think, something that makes you want to go after it".

"We are an extension of the front office and a part of the front office", he added, "and how we gather information and get it in the hands of the players is a very important part of the job nowadays".

Netflix revealed the news on Twitter and even they treat this announcement with a pinch of humor. It would nearly make more sense to film season 3 and a possible season 4 at the same time.
