Yanks honor Boss with Stadium exhibit
This one’s for The Boss.
The Yankees unveiled an exhibit honoring late owner George Steinbrenner at the team’s museum at Yankee Stadium on Friday.
The exhibit, dubbed “The Boss: Remembering George M. Steinbrenner III” attempts to convey Steinbrenner’s dedication to winning, his motivation to make the Yankees the best team in baseball and his quiet generosity.
On display are a variety of The Boss’ championship rings (the 1977, 78, 96, 98, 99, 00, 09 World Series rings), his American League championship rings and two rings from the Olympics, among others.
A selection of photographs and the work of late New York Daily News cartoonist Bill Gallo is also showcased.
