There are not that many things that most fans of major league baseball know about Aaron Boone, who on Friday was hired to be the New York Yankees manager.

Boone said he had interviewed for front office and coaching roles in recent years, but never for a manager's job. 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.

Boone was a big league third baseman from 1997-2009 and an All-Star in 2003, when NY acquired him from the Reds at the trade deadline.

That hire was first broken by The New York Daily News, and was later confirmed by ESPN.

After missing out on the Yankees' job, Thomson told the Phillies he is accepting an offer to become their bench coach, a person familiar that decision said. The person was not authorized to discuss the move because the Yankees have not announced it.

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". After his job interview, Boone said he grasped the demands.

Boone's career with NY was brief. He tore a knee ligament during a pickup basketball game in the offseason after his home run off Boston's Tim Wakefield and was released by NY, which replaced him by acquiring Alex Rodriguez. There will be no second round of interviews, as Cashman is ready to make his recommendation to ownership.

Boone's grandfather, Ray, was a two-time All-Star infielder from 1948-60.

"Being around the game, being around Bret, being around the entire family, my dad, all of the conversations our family had their whole lives has revolved around baseball and every aspect of baseball", said Bob Boone, who managed the Royals from 1995-97 and the Reds (with Aaron on the team) from 2001-03. "I'm 44 years old now, 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". He has worked at Newsday since August 31, 1998, and has been in his current position since July 5, 2004. That's a good thing, because Aaron Boone doesn't have any. "There's a lot to consider and there's a lot of great information out there that is instilled into the game today".
