A sad day for baseball, as George Steinbrenner has died. As a Sox fan, I hated the man that would spend anything and everything to lure the best players there. But after today, beating the Yankees won’t be the same. The man who orchestrated what the Yankees have become, who resurrected what the Yankees were, is no longer behind the scenes running things. It’s hard to hate the Yankees today. And today, of all days, I cheer for the Yankees, and the rest of the American League, in the All Star Game. This video shows the kind of owner George was, and the type of owner every team needs.
RIP George Steinbrenner.
