As much as I HATE the Yankees this is sad news. Say what you will about the man but he was a owner that cared about winning or loseing. Sad news indeed.

He bought the Yankees in 1973 with 10 million dollars. Think about that for a moment. In less than 40 years, the man made almost 100 percent profit on the Yankees who are valued at almost a billion dollars now.

The kind of drive and determination that it takes to do something like that is just not understood by anyone but a handful of individuals.

Say what you want about him, I would have given anything to have mentored under someone like that. If only 1 percent of what he was rubbed off on you, it would have been incredible.

Actually...that's a 10000% profit.

RIP George; you were the MLB owner I used to loved to hate, but you knew your business.
