Today is a sad day for Yankees, baseball, and sports fans in general. Iconic Yankees' owner George Steinbrenner passed away this morning due a heart attack. Steinbrenner, 80, enjoyed much success after he took over the Yankees in 1973 as the team won seven World Series titles and 11 American League pennants. The Glazers released a statement today regarding the passing of Steinbrenner.

"The sports world and Tampa community have lost a legend and a friend. George was one of the most consequential and colorful executives in sports history. He helped restore his proud franchise to its unique place in sports and society. However, his greatest contributions weren't those that graced the sports page. He was a caring, gentle giant in our community. George will be sorely missed."
