I never liked the Yankees but I always was amused by him -- Sad day indeed my condolences to all Yankee fans.

His meddling during the '80s drove me nuts, but there's no question that, for the most part, he got the Yankees what they needed to win. I met him once in Cooperstown and got an autograph. He was as pleasant as could be.

RIP, Boss.

RIP George...thanks for being such a compassionate owner who always held the fans close to his vest. There aren't many owners out there with so much emotional ties to his team like George was...like him or not, he was one of a kind.

Every sports fan wishes that they had an owner who cared about winning as much as George did.

The Evil Empire has lost its Emperor. RIP, George.

Passion and Compassion - those are the things I will remember about him. I also thank him very, very much for all the money he has donated to the Jimmy Fund over the years.

RIP

RIP George.

He built an empire like no other. What he did to that franchise is simply amazing. Although like Bob said, in the 80's he didn't have it quite right yet. He learned as he got older which is impressive.

I shook his hand outside of the stadium in the mid 80's when I was in High School. I said George whatever you do, don't fire Sweet Lou. I got a pretty dirty look.

funny.. i was just thinking about to the 80's with a smile.. thinking of his battles with billy martin... interesting how time changes how i look at things.

he was a tough guy.

i can see billy waiting for him ...

and bob sheppard announcing him.. "As Owner, the boss., george steinbrenner, the boss"

there will never be another one like him.

RIP George. Max, if he didnt get suspended from baseball in the 90's the Yankees would have never had that dynasty. Stick Michael built that team with no interference from the boss ;)

Well put.

He always tried everything he could to field a winning team and he certainly put his money where his mouth was.

A sad day in baseball, and Yankee history - i am truly sad, like losing someone close - my entire life, I have lived and died with the Yankees - and he was the man putting it all together - ups and downs, the man was an emotional, prideful, and masterful owner that put his team and his fans first. Every move that he made, right or wrong - was, in his eyes, the right move for his team to win. We were lucky to have such a winner in charge of this great organization - not too mention a humanitarian, and one that was more generous with his money than the public will ever know. A very sad day, indeed.

He wanted to buy the Cleveland Indians, but they wouldnt let him. So, he bought the Yankees (with help) instead.

Hes been sick for a long time and is finally out of pain. Me thinks last years WS win was for the big guy.

RIP

Steinbrenner really turned around his image after he returned from his suspension in 1993. He let his baseball people run the show and he provided everything he could to ensure that the Yankees would put a championship-caliber team on the field. Thank you George. RIP.

I guess God's baseball team in heaven is all set now that he has a p.a. announcer and an owner.

R.I.P.

There will never be another like him.

And Bob Sheppard.

Might as well just win the next 2, the Yankees are good at making dynasties.

2 in 4 years or 90 for that matter does not qualify.
