george steinbrenner 285x300 Top 8 Quotes by New York Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner has suffered a massive heart attack, and died today July 13, 2010 at the age of 80, according to CNN affiliate reports.

A statement from his family said. “He was a visionary and a giant in the world of sports. He took a great but struggling franchise and turned it into a champion again.”

He always had high expectations for his players.

The team has seven World Series trophies – 1977, ’78, ’96, ’98, ’99, 2000 and ’09 earned under Steinbrenner’s ownership since 1973.

Steinbrenner bought the Yankees for $10 million and under his ownership they have become the most valuable team in U.S. professional sports, with estimating its value at over one-billion dollars.

No, he was not a baby boomer…However, he was such a huge part of baby boomer history with his ownership of the New York Yankees. How can any boomer generation baseball fan forget his Yankee teams of the 70s with Catfish Hunter, Reggie Jackson and Thurmon Munson. That during the World Series with the Yankees, Reggie Jackson, earned the nickname Mr. October.

George Steinbrenner had a temper, wanted winning above all else. Also, remember the shouting matches with Billy Martin and how many times did Steinbrenner hire and fire Billy Martin was it 3 or 4 times.

Love him or hate him he left his mark on the game of Major League Baseball.
