A few words from Mr. October

One person, at least as far as everything I read, we had not heard from since George Steinbrenner's death Tuesday morning was Reggie Jackson. Late last night the Yankees released this statement from Mr. October:

"Upon hearing of Mr. Steinbrenner’s passing early Tuesday morning, the last two days have been filled with great emotion and personal reflection. The relationship I shared with The Boss is one that both heartens and comforts me during this difficult time. He meant so much to so many people, and I will always cherish him as a leader, a winner, and a friend.

“While I look forward to honoring and celebrating Mr. Steinbrenner’s life with his family and loved ones, I am taking this time to reflect on the enormous and lasting imprint he made within the game of baseball, throughout the Yankees organization, and in my life.”
