Today the sports world lost an iconic figure in New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner. His death came a shock to everyone as the Yankees were also mourning the loss of their announcer for so many years.
Steinbrenner created the evil empire, he changed the face of baseball forever, and he will be missed. In the era of sports owners trying to become celebrities like Jerry Jones and Mark Cuban, none of them came even close to George Steinbrenner.
Although he did trade away Jay Buhner, one of their top prospects, he will be missed by any baseball fan for the last 40 years.
