Yankees keep Girardi

11:26 am on 10 October 2013

The New York Yankees have announced they've re-signed manager Joe Girardi to a four-year contract, ending weeks of speculation that he may be about to leave the Major League Baseball team.

Girardi has already been manager of the Yankees for six seasons, steering the Bronx Bombers to a record 27th World Series Championship in 2009.

The Yankees failed to reach the playoffs this season after a year plagued with injuries to key players, prompting speculation Girardi could accept an offer to join the Chicago Cubs.
