One of the greatest eras in Yankee baseball is not coming to an end as George Steinbrenner, age 77 ages. In fact, this could be just the beginning. This week the most famous boss in baseball announced that his two sons Hal and Hank Steinbrenner would be taking over the reigns of the Yankee empire, including the coveted YES! Television Network. This is great news for Yankee fans everywhere, considering the immense success the Yankee have had under Steinbrenner ownership.
This is a huge deal in New York and one of many big developments expected during the Yankee off season, with the whole A Rod and Torre situations, as well as the possibilities of Andy Petite, Jorge Posada, and Mariano Rivera becoming free agents. The Steinbrenner brothers will definetely face some major tasks early on in their Yankee careers, but don't think George won't still be in play. He hasn't handed over the crown just yet and he will be sticking around, despite his looming health problems. It will be interesting how everything plays out and whether the sons of perhaps the greatest owner in baseball history can become successful.
