George Steinbrenner is planning to travel to New York for some postseason games if the AL East-leading Yankees make the playoffs.
Steinbrenner attended opening day at the new Yankee Stadium this season but has attended few games in New York since becoming increasingly frail. He also watched the Yankees beat the Rays 6-2 on July 29th at Tropicana Field, which is a short trip from his Tampa home.
Steinbrenner has kept a low profile since turning over the day-to-day operation of the team to his sons, Hal and Hank Steinbrenner, two years ago.
George Steinbrenner spent three hours in his office at the team’s spring-training complex Thursday. When asked about the Yankees’ solid play, the 79-year-old owner said: “Let’s keep it going.”
Well, I suppose that’s better than Big Stein saying “More wine for Polyphemus, the son of Neptune!”
I guess the Boss is off Pat Benatar tunes these days and now channeling fellow Floridians…
