George Steinbrenner passed away yesterday at the age of 80. Mr. Steinbrenner was a giant among men in the world of baseball. As a Yankee fan, what he did for my team was amazing. What he did for the game helped to keep baseball relevant and current. In a time when football and basketball became major competitors. Steinbrenner turned the Yankees into the Evil Empire. Love or hate the Yankees we all watched. He demanded perfection. He expected nothing less. Maybe we all should learn from his example and strive to be our best.
Rest in peace George. Our condolences to his family.
