New York Yankees Are Keeping Their Manager Around, Sign Him To New Contract

The New York Yankees have signed manager Aaron Boone to a three-year contract. It will end after the completion of the 2024 season. It also comes with a club option for the 2025 campaign.

Some fans may be a bit surprised by the Yankees' decision. There was some speculation that the Yankees would opt to move on from him due to the team's disappointing finish. They came into this season with high expectations, but were eliminated in the Wild Card game against the Boston Red Sox. Furthermore, the Yankees already fired hitting coach Marcus Thames, third base coach Phil Nevin and assistant hitting coach P.J. Pilittere after the season. 

Since becoming manager of the Yankees for the 2018 season, he has a 328-218 record and .601 winning percentage. His best season with the club came in 2019 when he led them to a 103-59 record. They would go on to lose in the AL Championbship Series against the Houston Astros.

Nonetheless, Boone is not only coming back to New York, but now is locked up for multiple seasons.
