Awful news, but I had known this day was coming for the last couple years. Their family would never release any medical information about him, but it was obvious he was in poor health and looked like he had had a stroke. He's only been seen in public a few times the last couple seasons. I just hope his sons don't sell the team now that he's gone, Steinbrenner would roll over in his grave. He wasn't the best person or most liked man, but he did everything you could ever ask of an owner. He was also very charitable, but would give most of his money anonymously because he didn't want the attention. I had been eyeing the new biography: Steinbrenner: The Last Lion of Baseball
