Now, at 44, he can build on that legacy as a rookie manager for the team. That person also spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision was not announced. Steinbrenner approved, giving Boone his first managing job at any level. Meulens has been coaching since 2003 and was recently named the San Francisco Giants bench coach after eight years as their hitting coach.
But it began with a tough phone call from Boone to general manager Brian Cashman, having to explain how he'd just violated standard terms of his new one-year, $5.75 million contract by playing hoops that day, suffering what turned out to be a season-ending injury. One of those men-Eric Wedge-had major league managerial experience.
The pennant winners from the past two seasons - the Houston Astros, the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians - are among the teams that lean heavily on this dynamic. "In a way, I've been preparing for this job my entire life".
Boone is part of a three-generation baseball family.
Most MLB managers toil for years as bench coach, pitching coach, managing in the minors or other positions where they have to display leadership of players. 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.
Boone said he had interviewed for front office and coaching roles in recent years, but never for a manager's 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".
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". Will Aaron Boone be able to take NY to the next step and bring home a 28th Commissioner's Trophy?
Whatever their relationship with Girardi, those players helped the Yankees win the top AL wild card spot and make a deep playoff run, a rapid rise for a team that seemed to be in transition.
Boone told reporters after his interview that he's been preparing for this job "for 44 years".
"I just feel like it's started to really pull at me", he said. "Expectations are ramped up even more".
Apparently, Boone was the guy who checked most of the boxes.
Boone had a rather pedestrian career as a player but the highlight of his career came as a member of the Yankees.
