Here is a press release from the NY Yankees:

To commemorate the lives and recognize the passings of former Principal Owner / Chairperson George M. Steinbrenner III and longtime Yankees public address announcer Bob Sheppard, the Yankees will don uniform patches for the remainder of the season, beginning with Friday’s game vs. Tampa Bay at Yankee Stadium.

The Steinbrenner commemorative patch will be worn above the interlocking NY on the left breast of the Yankees’ home jerseys and above the letters “YORK” on the left breast of the Yankees’ road uniforms. Both locations are over the heart.

The Sheppard commemorative patch will be worn on the left sleeve of the Yankees’ home and road jerseys.

At tonight’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Anaheim, Calif., Manager Joe Girardi, Yankees players and Yankees coaches will wear black armbands on their left sleeves in honor of Mr. Steinbrenner’s passing.

"The Boss" is often found observing spring training up close, bat in hand.Here are a couple of notes I thought you should know about:

Derek Jeter will have Bob Sheppard’s recorded voice introduce him tonight at the All-Star Game. “It’s a great idea,” Jeter said. “He deserves it.”

Mark Feinsand of the NY Daily News reported that Major League Baseball will have a moment of silence for Steinbrenner before tonight’s All-Star Game. Flags are also being flown at half staff in his honor.

Along with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Steinbrenner and Torre celebrate the Yankees Subway World Series victory over the Mets with a ticker-tape parade and rally at City Hall. It was the sixth and final world title of Steinbrenner's tenure as owner.

George Steinbrenner is proud of another one of his creations, the Yankees spring training complex in Tampa. Formerly known as Legends Field, the stadium was renamed after "The Boss" in 2009.

Steinbrenner tries to keep his manager's mind off his cancer scare in 1999. Torre sits in George's box during a game against the Tigers in April 1999 at the Stadium.

"The Boss" meets the First Lady, presenting Hilary Clinton with a Yankees cap during the team's visit to the White House after winning the 1999 World Series.

He moves even closer to the players as they get ready for the World Series against the Mets. The Bombers have to take batting practice with "The Boss" looking over their shoulder.

Steinbrenner owns several horses, six of which run in the Kentucky Derby. Here, "The Boss" is with his entry in the 1997 Derby, Concerto.

ESPN is reporting that Steinbrenner passed away this morning.

R.I.P. George M. Steinbrenner III “The Boss” (July 4, 1930-July 13, 2010)

“Winning is the most important thing in my life, after breathing. Breathing first, winning next.

“As I’ve always said, the way New Yorkers back us we have to produce for them.”

“I haven’t always done a good job, and I haven’t always been successful – but I know that I have tried.”

“I’m really 95 percent Mr. Rogers, and only 5 percent Oscar the Grouch.”

“Owning the Yankees is like owning the Mona Lisa.”
