Yankees' Steinbrenner dies at 80..

Longtime New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner died Tuesday morning, his family confirmed in a statement.

"It is with profound sadness that the family of George M. Steinbrenner III announces his passing. He passed away this morning in Tampa, Fla., at age 80," the family said in a statement.

"He was an incredible and charitable man. First and foremost he was devoted to his entire family -- his beloved wife, Joan; his sisters, Susan Norpell and Judy Kamm, his children, Hank, Jennifer Jessica and Hal; and all of his grandchildren.

The end of a ERA for the NY Yankees, but a new one will surely begin

My sincere condolences to his family, and his friends.

Now that the niceties are out of the way, however......

He was definitely an icon. My prayers and heartfelt sympathy go out to his family. And I am not a Yankee fan.

One thing no one can deny.... he put his money and resources into producing a successful product, and the Yankees have certainly been successful under his ownership. He will be missed, but the franchise will survive.

Rest in peace Mr. Steinbrenner, and thank you.

Peace
