A star, switch-hitting center fielder for the Royals and Mets, and an approachable, knowledgeable designated hitter later in his career - including 2014-2016 with the Yanks - Beltran on Wednesday became the sixth candidate to interview for the Yankees' vacant managing position.

His philosophy, he said, was "communication" - fostering a positive working environment for his players, building relationships and engaging in "truthful conversations". "Honestly, the time that I spent in NY was a great time, and I really enjoyed every moment of it". You're not just talking about any team in baseball.

"Being able to get a job like Yankees manager, there's a lot of responsibility that comes with that, and I'm all for it", said Beltran, who added that he has the full support of his family to pursue being a manager, something he definitely wants to do at some point - whether it's now or in the future. "I think that really helped me to be in the position I am right now".
