New York Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner Dies
I bring you sad news this morning. According to ESPN, George Steinbrenner died in his Tampa home this morning after suffering a massive heart attack.
Steinbrenner is well known for being the tempermental owner of the New York Yankees. He is also famous for making the Yankees one of the most lucrative and successful teams of the last 40 years.
Steinbrenner used free agency to make the Yankees a dynasty. George Steinbrenner showed major league baseball you get what you pay for by awarding huge salaries to great players. This formula had massive success. "The Boss" led The New York Yankees to 11 pennants and helped them win seven World's Series.
That is a lot of World Series wins.
They are few other sports franchise owners that are so well known to the general public. "Steinbrenner" was even a recurring character on "Seinfeld".
He will be missed and mourned by millions of New York Yankee fans and friends all over the globe. I think even Yankee haters will be saddened by the death of a MLB icon.
Our thoughts are with the Steinbrenners today.
