The New York Yankees announced on Tuesday that they have re-signed manager Aaron Boone to a three-year contract with a club option for 2025.

Boone, 48, has posted a regular-season record of 328-218 in four seasons with the Yankees. He's also guided the team to the playoffs in each of his first four seasons at the helm.

“We have a person and manager in Aaron Boone who possesses the baseball acumen and widespread respect in our clubhouse to continue to guide us forward,” said Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner in a release. “As a team and as an organization, we must grow, evolve and improve. We need to get better. Period. I know Aaron fully embraces our expectations of success, and I look forward to drawing on his intelligence, instincts and leadership in pursuit of our next World Series championship.”

The Yankees posted a 92-70 record this season under Boone and clinched a fifth consecutive post-season berth, but were eliminated in the AL wild-card game by the Boston Red Sox.
