George Steinbrenner, owner of the New York Yankees passed away today at age 80. While New Yorkers loved him for his championships, a lot of the people loathed him because of his win at any cost attitude. But the bottom line, is that he won and he was successful in baseball.
RIP George, baseball will never be the same.
