In response to today's New York Daily News story that said there are "rumors flying" that the Steinbrenner family might sell the team, Hal Steinbrenner has released a statement:

"I just learned of the Daily News story," Steinbrenner said. "It is pure fiction. The Yankees are not for sale. I expect that the Yankees will be in my family for many years to come."

Major League Baseball has also released a statement saying the team is not for sale.

“Major League Baseball has received no indications from any representatives of the New York Yankees or anyone else that the Club is for sale,” the statement read.
