Baseball Hall of Fame mourns the loss of Yankees owner
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (WKTV) - The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown mourned the loss of Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner, who died Tuesday morning following a massive heart attack at age 80.
"George Steinbrenner served the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum's Board of Directors with great commitment and enthusiasm for the last 12 years since his election as a director in 1998," said Hall of Fame Chairman of the Board Jane Forbes Clark. "He shared his vision, kindness, love for the game and his generosity in so many ways as a key figure in the Board's leadership. His impact on the Museum's ability to preserve baseball history is felt at so many levels in the organization. Our sympathies are with the Steinbrenner family. He will be greatly missed in Cooperstown."
