George Steinbrenner was in the building last night at Yankees stadium to participate in the pregame ceremonies. This was the bosses first trip to Yankee stadium this season.
He delivered baseballs to four Yankees legends who tossed out the first pitch(s).
After the All-Star teams and 49 Hall of Famers were introduced, Joe Buck, the Fox broadcaster, referred to a special guest sitting in a golf cart in left field. It was Steinbrenner, who wept as he was driven across the outfield warning track and onto the field. He received a polite ovation.
When the golf cart reached the mound, Steinbrenner handed the baseballs to Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Reggie Jackson and Goose Gossage, the Yankees’ four Hall of Famers who were on the field. Ford and Berra kissed Steinbrenner, and Jackson and Gossage hugged him.
It was nice to see the old boss back, at least for once. He has had a lot of health issues and I wish him the best. It’s too bad he can’t pull a Michael Jordan on us because it definitely doesn’t look like his son really knows what he is doing.
Looks like another case of some guy running his business one way and then his son coming in a fuckin everything up worse than he did. Sounds kind of like the Bush administration.
