Today is a big day in the Yankee Universe, it is not only the 4th of July, but it is George Steinbrenner’s 80th birthday. While George may not be running the show anymore, his presence is still felt and carried on by his son Hal. And let’s not forget all that George Steinbrenner has meant to the Yankees. He is the reason the Yankees have a beautiful new stadium and tons of resources available to create the best team possible. If it were not for George, the Yankees would be a very different team. So on his birthday, let’s remember and he has meant to the Yankees. Happy Birthday George! And, thank you for all you have done.
In honor of George Steinbrenner, today the Yankees plan to display all seven World Series trophies the team has won since Steinbrenner took control of the team in 1973. And I am sure they have some more events planned for the celebration of the 4th of July. It should be a fun day!
