George Steinbrenner's Greatest Moments as Yankees Owner

Today was a sad day in the history of the New York Yankees ball club. Long time owner George Steinbrenner suffered a major heart attack at his home in Tampa, Florida. One could say that after buying the Yanks for whole $8,000,000 in 1973, Steinbrenner brought the Yanks back to glory the glory days of old -- the glory days that Yankee fans were waiting for, for so long. As of today (July 13th, 2010), the Yankees estimated net worth (according to nbcsports.com) is somewhere around $1.6 billion. It isn't quite enough to say that Steinbrenner took New York back to the promise land that is Major League Baseball, because he did a lot more than just that for this ball club.

To pay our respects to a man that transcended Major League Baseball - for better or for worse - I have listed just a few of Steinbrenner's greatest moments as Yankees owner. Enjoy.
