George Steinbrenner 1930 - 2010

Yankees owner and sports business legend George M. Steinbrenner died today at the age of 80. Our condolences go out to his family, and to all the Yankee fans out there.

For those that do not understand the impact that this man has made on sports in American, and particularly in baseball in New York City, check out Bill Madden's book, "The Last Lion of Baseball".
