Our prayers go out to his family and fans.......

"It is with profound sadness that the family of George M. Steinbrenner III announces his passing,'' the Steinbrenner family said in a prepared statement. "He passed away this morning in Tampa, Fla., at age 80."

"He was an incredible and charitable man," his family said in a statement. "First and foremost he was devoted to his entire family — his beloved wife, Joan; his sisters, Susan Norpell and Judy Kamm; his children, Hank, Jennifer, Jessica and Hal; and all of his grandchildren."

Sources say he had a heart attack at his Tampa, Florida home Monday night and passed shortly after.

Steinbrenner was known for his controversial ways. He was the proud owner of the New York Yankees but embraced his reputation as a philanthropist in the Tampa Bay area.
