RIP, George M. Steinbrenner

George SteinbrennerGeorge M. Steinbrenner passed away five years ago today. He was the Yankee most responsible for ending the Horace Clarke Era and restoring the Yankee tradition of winning. I only had the chance to play for The Boss for just slightly more than one season before I was traded to the Indians – but my trade brought Chris Chambliss to New York and I can’t argue with the wisdom of that. The Boss believed that the Yankees were the greatest team in the history of the world and I look forward one day to making the trip to Cooperstown to see him inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. RIP George Steinbrenner.
