A person familiar with the decision says the New York Yankees have picked ESPN broadcaster Boone to succeed Joe Girardi as manager. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Friday, Dec. 1,2017, because the decision had not been announced by the team. Now 44, Boone has never been a manager or even a coach at any level since retiring as a player after the 2009 season. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast, File)
