George Steinbrenner is baseball’s greatest owner.
To say otherwise, isn’t even making good conversation. To say otherwise in the Bronx, will probably get you punched.
For all the griping and grumbling that has passed between the Bronx and The Boss, we know him as baseball’s greatest neighbor.
“The horrible tragedy in the Bronx which has resulted in the loss of life of nine of our neighbors has touched our hearts and those of all New Yorkers,” Steinbrenner said. “The New York Yankees have tremendous sympathy for the families and friends of those who have lost their lives or have been injured. We hope that by paying for the funerals our assistance will be able to ease some of their burden.”
We don’t say it enough, but we are thankful for neighbors like George Steinbrenner.
