Jacoby Ellsbury is reportedly making the biggest leap in baseball, switching out his Boston Red Sox uniform for New York Yankees’ pinstripes.

Ellsbury and the Yankees have signed a seven-year contract worth more than $150 million, according to multiple outlets reporting the deal, including CBS News, USA Today and ESPN.

The center-fielder’s move comes just more than a month since he and the Red Sox won the 2013 World Series in six games, sending Cardinals back to St. Louis empty-handed. He was instrumental in the final game of that series, hitting a single that was the first volley in a Boston rally that ended in a Sox title.

Ellsbury also won the World Series with the Red Sox in 2007, his first year on the team.
