The Yankees just announced that they unveiled an image of George M. Steinbrenner III inside the Stadium in honor of the late principal owner who passed away on July 13.
Measuring 40 feet wide by 13-and-a-half feet tall, the image has been placed in right field, just behind the bleachers. It features a photo of Steinbrenner on a Yankees blue background with the trademark Yankee Stadium frieze across the top, with his name, the years 1930-2010 and the phrase “The Boss.”
The listing of the Yankees’ 27 championship years – seven of which were won under Mr. Steinbrenner – will be relocated to the facing of the H&R Block Suite level around the Stadium bowl, in view of the field, prior to the next homestand.
Information on a tribute for Mr. Steinbrenner will be announced at a later date.
