The New York Yankees have selected former star player Aaron Boone to replace Joe Girardi as manager, United States media reported on Friday.

During his teleconference after interviewing for the Yankees' managerial opening, Aaron Boone talked about forging strong relationships with his players, based on trust.

The news came down on Friday night that the longtime third baseman will become the next Yankees manager for the 2018 season; succeeding Joe Girardi, who parted ways with the team after 10 years in the Bronx.

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reported Meulens was the other finalist for the job.

Cashman said that while there was no ideal 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".

Boone has baseball in his blood; his father was Bob Boone, who was also a former player and manager, and his brother was Bret Boone, a former All Star infielder.

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. "Being around great teams, great players, I've kind of lived this game".

The Yankees have reportedly hired postseason hero and current ESPN analyst Aaron Boone as their new manager, reports ESPN's Buster Olney. Sources said Carlos Beltran was informed he would not be the manager, but the just-retired outfielder could be considered for another role in the organization. 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. "I've been going to the ballpark since I was 3 or 4 years old".

Cashman made his recommendation to owner Hal Steinbrenner and a contract still has to be worked out. He has never managed or coached at any level.

Boone remains a fan favorite in NY - and, like Bucky Dent, will always carry an alternative middle name in Boston - because of that one big swing in the 2003 ALCS. "That's part of the game and Major League sports".

"I reached out to Alex a number of times, 'Hey, what do you got?' I looked for a lot of guidance from a lot of people that I have a lot of respect for, and Alex knows baseball as well as anybody" Cashman said.

Cashman added: "He never expressed interest in any way, shape or form".

The average age of Girardi's first seven Yankees rosters was always between 29.3 and 31.8 years, according to Baseball Reference.
