Security is essential, whether you are rappelling down a 22-story skyscraper or preparing for another season as a big league manager. Aaron Boone did both on Friday morning, hearing that he can count on having a lot more rope in the Yankees’ dugout.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman expressed his hope that Boone will serve a decade-long run in the manager’s chair, a statement that he previously voiced in September. He said it this time while they were dangling off the Landmark Tower — Stamford, Conn.’s third tallest structure.
"I've had three managers. 10 (years) with Joe Torre. 10 with Girardi and hopefully 10 more with Boone."

“I’ve had three managers — 10 [years] with Joe Torre, 10 with [Joe] Girardi and hopefully 10 more with Boone,” Cashman told FOX News’ Will Cain during a practice run for the upcoming Heights & Lights festivities.
The first Major League manager to win 100 or more games in each of his first two seasons, Boone has piloted the Yankees to three consecutive postseason appearances since replacing Girardi before the 2018 campaign.
