Legendary New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner passed away this morning after suffering a major heart attack. Love him or hate him, the man was among the most important to the game of baseball in the sport’s history. Equal parts narcissistic and brilliant, Steinbrenner and his checkbook have been the definition of polarity for decades. If anything, he was an incredible character, someone who couldn’t be created by the greatest fiction authors. Tonight’s All-Star Game will indeed have a little extra weight to it now.
