In case any of you were wondering, New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone can still hit.

The 46-year-old, who retired after the 2009 MLB season, put on a show during batting practice at Old-Timer's Day on Sunday afternoon, crushing a home run comfortably over the left-field wall.

Not too shabby for a guy who hasn't had a Major League at-bat in a little over a decade. The pitch thrown by Yankees' hitting coach Marcus Thames couldn't have been more of a meatball, but hitting a ball out of a MLB park is no easy task.

With the Yankees currently sitting with the sixth-most home runs in the Majors this season (126), it's pretty safe to say that Boone won't have to step up to the plate again any time soon. Just keep on filling out that lineup card, coach.
