He died of a heart attack. He has been the driving force of the Yankees for so many years. Larger than life and he always tells you what he thinks. For anyone who follows baseball this is a big shock. He was born on the 4th of July in Ohio. He made some of the most expensive purchases in baseball history and offered lucrative contracts and changed a struggling team with a great history, to become dynamic once again
there is a special tribute section to him in our sunday paper if anyone wants to take a look. I found out he is laid to rest north of Tampa, within minutes of where I live. It is a very, peaceful, beautiful location and was kept well guarded from the press until after the small ceremony.
