    "The Yankees are profoundly saddened by the passing of former United States secretary of state Henry Kissinger, who performed varied and vital diplomatic and advisory roles throughout his distinguished career. A lifelong friend of the Yankees organization, he was a frequent welcome guest of the Steinbrenner family at Yankee Stadium. We offer our heartfelt condolences to his family, friends and all who had the privilege of knowing him. He will be deeply missed.”
  • THREAT TO MOVE YANKS ANGERS N.Y. (1993 Flashback)

    t's a glorious day for baseball at Yankee Stadium and fans are flocking to watch their team battle the Oakland Athletics, but two words are enough to cloud their joy. One word is "George." The other is "Steinbrenner." After threatening to pull the Yankees out of their stadium in the Bronx and resettle them in New Jersey, it is well the multimillionaire owner is not present, for at this game he has no friends. "The Yankees are a New York tradition," said Brendan Walsh, his voice heavy with sorrow. "To move them would be awful . . . just awful....
  • If you want to understand Trump, look at his early relationship with... his best friend

    On February 8, 1984, a few of the most prominent businessmen in New York — members of the New York State Urban Development Corporation — were holding a news conference. Among them was a press darling — a man whose brash reputation and penchant for public tirades had made him one of the city's most recognizable figures. His rise to prominence a decade earlier sprung from his purchase of a major New York institution. He was tall, an imposing figure with his hair just long enough to be swept flat behind his ears. He often bellowed, "You're fired!," a connotation...
  • Donald Trump – The George Steinbrenner Of American Presidents

    A reporter on Fox News last night compared the leadership style of President Trump to that of the late NY Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, as if that’s a bad thing. I beg to differ. Yeah, Steinbrenner was a bitch to work for – he fired Billy Martin alone on 3 different occasions – but here’s the record: While he was running the Yankees, they won more games, more division championships, more league championships and more World Series titles than any other team in Major League Baseball during those 38 seasons. Steinbrenner’s record is so impressive that ESPN, in an article...

    What’s your favorite Steinbrenner ‘Seinfeld’ moment? By Anonymous GateHouse News Service Posted Jul 13, 2010 @ 11:51 AM George Steinbrenner, who died Tuesday at age 80, “starred” on “Seinfeld” for several seasons. Steinbrenner never actually appeared on the show (though he did shoot a scene that was cut), as he was portrayed by Lee Bear and voiced by Larry David. The fictional Steinbrenner was a loquacious man who served as George Costanza’s boss at the New York Yankees. Do you have a favorite Steinbrenner “Seinfeld” moment? Let us know. Here’s a quick rundown of some memorable “Big Stein” moments. “THE...

    Ten years ago they were bigtime winners and looked the part. Ted Turner was the embodiment of a swinging, swaggering billionaire with ideas springing from his brain like coins falling from the pockets of a pair of pants hung upside-down. His all news channel, CNN, was prospering and when he made a speech, everyone leaned forward and listened intently. Nobody broke up. And ten years ago, George Steinbrenner beamed as the Joe Torre era began, and the Yankees, no longer the Bronx Zoo curated by Billy Martin, started to run the table of playoffs and World Series. The Boss had...

    LITTLE ROCK - A young New York Yankees fan who saved $1,000 so he could take himself out to a ballgame in the Bronx gave up the money to help keep his local school open. Yankees owner George Steinbrenner found out about the boy's charity and invited him to New York. ''Jonathan, I couldn't be more proud of you,'' Steinbrenner wrote to Jonathan Farrar, a student in the Midland School District of Pleasant Plains. ''I agree with you when you said, 'The New York Yankees are important to me, but my school is more important.' You're absolutely right and it...

    The Polo Grounds: A Calm Review of Baseball ^ | 16 August 2002 | Jeff Kallman
    Baseball's "Labour Trouble": Overdraft at the Memory Bank? by Jeff Kallman A rather splendid New York Yankee pitcher, Ed Lopat, grew up to become a rather splendid Minnesota Twins scout. It would have been rather more splendid if only his employer at the time hadn't been the bottom-feeding Kansas City Athletics. Scouting a wiry Cuban outfielder, Lopat was singularly unimpressed. "This kid," he reported to the Athletics, "will never hit in the big leagues."Until that kid's knees betrayed him about a decade later, a Rookie of the Year award, three American League batting championships, one American League pennant, and a...
