Your memories of George Steinbrenner?
Tue, July 13, 2010

New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner died Tuesday morning. He was 80 years old.

"It is with profound sadness that the family of George M. Steinbrenner III announces his passing," a statement from the Steinbrenner family read.

Steinbrenner led a group of investors that purchased the Yankees on January 3, 1973 from CBS for about $9 million and, despite saying he would not be a hands-on owner, became the exact opposite. Fueled by an incredible desire to win, he helped turn the Yankees around in just a few years.

Since Steinbrenner took control, the Yankees have won seven World Series titles and 11 American League pennants. The club went to the World Series in 1976, just his fourth season of ownership, and captured the first of two straight titles the following year.

What are your memories of iconic Yankees owner? Send your condolences below.

Well I did not like the man as an Expo fan but you have to give him his due recognition, 16 AL East titles 7 World series. You have to say he did the job of winning and you can never take that away. Go Red Sox

I hope all the dead Expos take a pipe to his head when they see him.
