Steinbrenner, who celebrated his 80th birthday July 4, had been in declining health. He was taken to a hospital in Tampa, Florida, after emergency crews responded to his home Monday night. He died Tuesday morning.
Steinbrenner had owned the Yankees since 1973. The team won seven World Series titles and 11 American League pennants during his tenure of 37 years, which was the longest in team history. He returned for the day to day control of the team to his sons, Hal and Hank, in late 2007.
The Ohio-born Steinbrenner was one of the most controversial figures in sports. Nicknamed “The Boss”, was known for micromanaging the team, often brought him into conflict with the manager of the Yankees. He also played an important role in the escalation of player salaries in their search for high-priced free agents.
Steinbrenner is survived by his wife of 54 years and four children.
