Hank Steinbrenner, co-owner of the Yankees, died Tuesday at age 63. He passed away at his home in Clearwater, Florida. His death was not related to COVID-19, but rather due to a longstanding heath issue, according to a statement released by his family.
Hank Steinbrenner was the son of George Steinbrenner, who ran the Yankees in the 1990s and 2000s and helped mold the franchise into the renowned and celebrated institution it is today.
Hank and his brother Hal Steinbrenner took over running the Yankees around 2007, after their father’s health began to deteriorate. In recent years, Hank has played a behind-the-scenes role, with Hal primarily helming the team.
Hank Steinbrenner is survived by four children.
Steinbrenner's family released the following statement: “Hank was a genuine and gentle spirit who treasured the deep relationships he formed with those closest to him,” they said. “We are profoundly saddened to have lost him and will carry his memory with us always.”
