Days after Bob Sheppard, the voice of the New York Yankees, passed away, longtime Yankees owner George Steinbrenner has died of a heart attack. He was 80-years old. The most famous and controversial sports owner in America, Steinbrenner changed the way sports franchises operated and viewed free agency. He paved the way for sports teams to have their own networks and spread their brands on a global level. While he had numerous clashes with Major League Baseball, numerous players, and countless competitors in his decades-long run as Yankees owner, the one things he was always about was winning.
Above is a video of one of my favorite Yankees, Paul O’Neill, talking about the late George Steinbrenner.
