July 4, 2010 — Today is George M. Steinbrenner III’s 80th birthday.
There are few people whose contributions to the game of baseball match those of Mr. Steinbrenner. Closer to home, Mr. Steinbrenner has brought seven World Series championships to the New York Yankees since purchasing the team in 1973.
To celebrate the Boss’ birthday, the Yankees made all seven of the World Series trophies that were won during Mr. Steinbrenner’s ownership, available for public viewing at Yankee Stadium during today’s game.
While the Boss’ list of accomplishments is far too long for this blog, the photograph below provides a snapshot of what should be a Hall of Fame career.
Happy birthday, Boss.
