- Aaron Boone called his new job as manager of the New York Yankees "the chance of a lifetime" as the fabled franchise formally introduced him. "We're chasing championships," Boone said at Yankee Stadium after being introduced as the 33rd manager in Yankees history. He said he has been "locked in to the game" since he was three years old, watching his father Bob Boone play for the Philadelphia Phillies at Veterans Stadium. "This is a special day for me and my family," said Boone, who was accompanied on stage by his wife Laura. "I want to thank the Steinbrenner family for entrusting me with this position. It feels like the chance of a lifetime for me."
