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
Rest in peace George.
he will be missed greatly. a very charitable man. a legend for sure in baseball history. may he RIP.
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.
if there are any collectors out there, you can order a print of the special section. I can send my copy if someone wants it, just send me a mail from HP.
I don't know if there will ever be another Steinbrenner. He gave so much to baseball, his organization and to this area.
I remember the days when he kept firing Billy Martin
PS. The Yankees are my favorite baseball team
"some guys can lead through real, genuine respect, but I am not that kind of leader"
At least he knew his limitations.
