    I was hoping for a fly ball to CF to end the game. I've seen that before.

    • Is it sad or awesome that I got chills watching Piazza hit a grand slam in a Celebrity Softball game?

                    You'll always be remembered for being a great owner, and a great character on Seinfeld.

                      • How the **** is Steinbrenner a good owner? Walter O'Malley is a good owner. Any posthumous flattery is unnecessary. Remember Steinbrenner for what he was: an iconic jerk.

                          He was a great owner but Art Rooney is better.

                            They did win a boat load of a titles. I still don't like him.

                            Also, can't stand any owner who moves a team.

                              Regardless of ego, he made the New York Yankees the top of the sports world in both popularity and championships.

                              The Yankees won seven World Series titles and 11 American League pennants after his reign began in 1973.

                                Because he cared more about winning than making money. Sure he made a boat ton of money but that was because they started winning. The difference between him and most owners is that it wasn't just a business to him. It was his life. There are certainly many richer owners in baseball than the Steinbrenners, however those same billionaires continue to take the Steinbrenners luxury tax money and put in their pocket rather than investing it back into the team. Which is what he always did. Too many owners look at the teams as more of an investment rather than a passion which is what it was to George.
