Recommended Posts

George Steinbrenner died Tuesday morning, a person close to the longtime New York Yankees owner told The Associated Press.


WABC-TV in New York reported that Steinbrenner, the Yankees' owner since 1973, suffered a massive heart attack.

According to reports, Steinbrenner, who celebrated his 80th birthday on July 4, was taken to a Tampa hospital after emergency crews responded to his home Monday night.


Steinbrenner gave his sons, Hal and Hank, day-to-day control of the team in late 2007.


He told The Associated Press last week that he was "feeling good" after spending a couple hours in his office at the Yankees' spring training complex.


Under his ownership, the Yankees have won 11 AL pennants and seven World Series titles.


Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

Now, let's put a salary cap in MLB.


Good luck! I'd love it but dont see it happening. Now there is something people should be mad at Angelos for, even though he was cheered at the time. His refusal to field replacement players helped keep the disparity in salaries and payrolls alive.
