In very sad and shocking news, Yankees owner George Steinbrenner has died this morning following a massive heart attackk late Monday night.
It doesn't matter what your feelings are about him -- whether you're a Yankees fan, a Red Sox fan, or a Pirates fan -- Steinbrenner, 80, has been a major player in professional baseball since the early 1970s. He has been baseball's most well-known owner for almost that entire time as well.
As Red Sox fans, we may not have liked him because he was known to spend anything to get whatever he wanted, but no one ever said he wasn't good at his job.
