Suffered a massive heart attack, he was 80.
I hope the Yankees go all the way, now.
Now Yankees need a new owner.
'Tis truly the end of an era.

Heres the AP post:
Wont ever be another like him. I salute you George. I may have hated his guts, being a Red Sox fan, but I respected him as worth adversary. The stadium wont be the same with him glaring down at the Yankees. May he rest in peace
Mr. Steinbrenner many may not have much liked you but none can deny you knew how to run a baseball franchise!
Hated the Yankees with a passion.
But he was truly unique in his own way. Just like the Owner of the Cowboys...
Jerry Jones isnt worthy enough to hold Steinbrenners jock. George may have been a bastard, but he did it with class.
Yeah, I may not have much liked Steinbrenner being a Mariner guy, but the guy did what he did really well.
Shame it's the morning of the All-Star game.
As far as the team goes though, George left the team's running to his sons a few years ago. So they should be fine from that standpoint at least. Certainly a sad day in New York though.
At least George put everything into winning. I wish the A's owner were like that.
As a Yankee fan, I've always enjoyed the way he ran the team. Rest in Peace George, you will be missed.
Oh another note, I hope Larry David does his Steinbrenner impersonation one more time.

He bought the Yankees in 1973 at the cost of $8 to $10 million.
Today they said the team is worth $1 billion.
Hell of a return on investment.
welp, as much as i hate the yankees he was an innovator of the game. rip sir.
Maybe now the Orioles can beat them... nah, it'll never happen
if i actually believed that the moon landing was a Desilu production, i would say that the timing of his passing was very fascinating.
instead, i'd just say it seems fitting he went out like an All-Star and on the day baseball celebrates the giants of the league.
it's like Adams and Jefferson both passing away on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence; it guarantees their legacy won't be forgotten.
and George's work won't be, either.
sadly it is a perfect way to end his story.
Rest in Peace, George.
RIP big guy. I wonder who will helm the evil empire now.
I may be a Mets fan, but I respect an owner like Steinbrenner. The stupid Wilpons can't even measure up when it comes to commitment to winning. RIP George.
