RIP George Steinbrenner

I think Derwood will probably have a better post on this later. He is the Off Base Yankees fan. But Yankee owner extraordinaire George Steinbrenner past away early Tuesday morning at the age of 80. It is truly a sad day for baseball. Steinbrenner was great for the sport. You either loved him or hated him but there was no ignoring him. He was a visionary and an exceptionally charitable man. He was also the Emperor of The Evil Empire and fired Billy Martin 700 times. He changed baseball and hired George Costanza. And for that, I thank him. Rest in peace George.
