George Steinbrenner, who bought a declining Yankees team in 1973, promised to stay out of its daily affairs and then, in an often tumultuous reign, placed his formidable stamp on 7 World Series championship teams, 11 pennant winners and a sporting world powerhouse valued at perhaps $1.6 billion, died Tuesday morning, the team announced. He was 80 and lived in Tampa, Florida.

COMMISSIONER’S STATEMENT

Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig issued the following statement today regarding the passing of George Steinbrenner:

“On behalf of Baseball, I am very saddened by the passing this morning of George Steinbrenner.  George was a giant of the game and his devotion to baseball was surpassed only by his devotion to his family and his beloved New York Yankees.  He was and always will be as much of a New York Yankee as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford and all of the other Yankee legends.
