New York Yankees Co-Owner Henry “Hank” Steinbrenner has passed away Tuesday morning at his home in Clearwater, FL. The team said the passing was “from a longstanding health issue”.
“Hank was a genuine and gentle spirit who treasured the deep relationships he formed with those closest to him,” the Steinbrenner family said in the Yankees’ statement. “He was introduced to the Yankees organization at a very young age, and his love for sports and competition continued to burn brightly throughout his life.”
They continued; “Hank could be direct and outspoken, but in the very same conversation show great tenderness and light-heartedness. More than anything, he set an example for all of us in how comfortably he lived enjoying his personal passions and pursuits. We are profoundly saddened to have lost him and will carry his memory with us always.”
Hank was the oldest son of the late former Yankees president George Steinbrenner, who passed away in 2010 due to a heart attack at age 80. It should be reiterated that Steinbrenner’s passing is not related to COVID-19.
The entire GCSN family gives their condolences to the Yankees organization, and more importantly the entire Steinbrenner family.
