Aaron Boone

Aaron Boone (born March 9, 1973 in La Mesa, California) is a third baseman in Major League Baseball who has played for the Cincinnati Reds and the New York Yankees but currently is in the Cleveland Indians organization.

He is the son of former Reds manager Bob Boone and the brother of Seattle Mariners second baseman Brett Boone. He is a third-generation player in the Major Leagues.

He is most famous for his 11th inning home run during Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS to give the Yankees a 6-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox.

On February 27, 2004, Boone was cut from the Yankee roster after tearing a knee ligament during a pick-up basketball game played in violation of his contract with the Yankees. He was replaced at third base by former Texas Rangers shortstop Alex Rodriguez. The Yankees have expressed an interest in re-signing Boone to play second base in 2005, replacing Enrique Wilson. He was recently signed to a two-year contract (pending evaluation) by the Cleveland Indians.
