    Hank Steinbrenner, Yankees co-owner and eldest son of George Steinbrenner, dead at 63

    Henry G. “Hank” Steinbrenner, the oldest and most outspoken of George Steinbrenner’s sons, died Tuesday morning at his home in Clearwater, Fla., after a long illness. He was 63 years old. The death was not related to the coronavirus, a source told the Daily News.

    Hank Steinbrenner had seemed like the natural successor to his bombastic father, The Boss. Early on, in fact, Hank had been a more familiar face around the team, named a co-chairman of the Yankees with his younger brother Hal in 2007. Hank made a lot of noise with brash opinions, before stepping back and letting the quieter and more reserved Hal become the face of the family’s ownership.

    While Hank’s death will not have any obvious effects on the operation of the Yankees (which Forbes estimated is worth $5 billion in a report last week), his legacy is certainly weaved into the team’s history.

    “Hank was a genuine and gentle spirit who treasured the deep relationships he formed with those closest to him,” the Steinbrenner family said in a 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.
    Gratitude + Forgiveness = Happiness

    “Once in a while I’ll sit in the dugout and look out on the field and wonder: What good is all this, thinking about me, me, me, my batting average, my fielding average? Oh sure, you care about the team. You have to. But in the end you’re worried about you.

    “So I have to think of myself as an entertainer, really. Maybe kids can draw inspiration from what I do. Maybe people who come out to the park can forget their problems for a while by watching me play.

    “The difference between ballplayers and entertainers — actors like Richard Burton or Marlon Brando — is that actors do different things — comedy, drama, musicals, television, movies. A ballplayer just plays ball. But don’t get me wrong. A ballgame is never a bore to me. Oh, geez, it’s great. I love it. Every day there’s something new — the different situations, the different pitches.”

    I'm with you. All of my cardboard heroes are dying. Here's the card I remember most of him. He had a great 1971 season hitting .342 that season. RIP Glen Beckert
