George Steinbrenner Suffers Massive Heart Attack and Dies

New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner suffered a massive heart attack, Florida's Bay News 9 reported Tuesday. According to updated reports that have been released the Yankees owner has passed.

Steinbrenner, who celebrated his 80th birthday on July 4, was listed as in extremely critical condition in a Tampa, Fla hospital.

The famously cantankerous Steinbrenner, known as "The Boss," has been atop the Yankees masthead for seven World Series titles.

Though he frequently quarreled with the teams managers, in recent years he has been a rare presence at the ballpark, with most statements issued through a spokesperson.

More details to come.
