The New York Yankees owner, George Steinbrenner III, was rushed to the hospital in Florida. This is the latest from New York's ABC affiliate, Eyewitness News, whom was the first to report that the Yankees owner was rushed to St. Joseph's hospital. 

The Boss' condition is still unknown and the entire Yankees Universe is praying that he is recovering well. The man is 80 years old, but he remains young in the hearts and minds of all Yankee fans that had a chance to see him run the team to several championships. 

There have been reports that he has stepped down from baseball operations a bit since 2006, but in recent interviews, Randy Levine and Brian Cashman have said that he is still active with the team. He may not be the same prominent, big, and imposing figure, but George Steinbrenner will forever be The Boss. 

People like Bald Vinny and Yankees beat writer, Bryan Hoch, have all expressed their concern for the Boss' health. Prayers are being said everywhere for Steinbrenner as Yankee fans hope that this will not be the darkest month in Yankees history.

The family lost Bob Sheppard earlier in the week and the Yankee family does not want to lose yet another big member of the family.

There will never be another George Steinbrenner in baseball or any other sport. This man did everything with whatever he had. Steinbrenner was given a talent by God to build a great team and he did it in a matter of years with the Yankees. 

The Bleacher Report Community prays for George Steinbrenner and his health. Our prayers go out to the Steinbrenner family and the Yankees community.
