    The Boss is back at Yankee Stadium in a big way.

    At least his face is.

    On Thursday the Yankees unveiled a 40-foot wide by 13.5-foot tall image in honor of the team’s principal owner who died July 13.

    Located on the back wall of the right-center field grandstand, the inscription on the predominantly navy blue tribute reads: “George M. Steinbrenner III, 1930-2010, THE BOSS.” The trademark Yankee Stadium frieze runs across the top.

    Steinbrenner’s Yankees won 11 AL pennants and seven World Series.

    A list of the Yankees’ 27 championship years – including the seven under Steinbrenner – will be relocated to the facing of the H&R Block Suite level around the Stadium bowl, in view of the field. That relocation will take place prior to the next homestand.

    Just a matter of time before something for The Boss shows up in Monument Cave…

      Indeed. I assume it won’t be ready until Opening Day next year or maybe next July 4th for his birthday or on 7/13/11 to commemorate the one year anniversary of his passing. It probably takes a hell of a long time to make a large plaque of that sort.
