David Ortiz Explains Why Managing Yankees ‘Won’t Be Easy’ For Aaron Boone

“Aaron Boone from ESPN?”

That was David Ortiz’s reaction to reports Friday that the New York Yankees will hire Boone as their new manager. Big Papi, like many baseball fans, was surprised by Boone reportedly getting the job, considering the former Yankee has no managerial experience.

Ortiz, who played 15 seasons with the Boston Red Sox, understands the challenge of performing at a high level for a big-market team, and believes managing the Yankees “won’t be an easy thing to do” for Boone.
