Sparky Lyle’s Statement Regarding The Passing Of George Steinbrenner

(PR) “The news of the passing of George Steinbrenner was very saddening. I admired the man tremendously. He was the one who brought the Yankees back to prominence. All the little things that went on during his first years of ownership were growing pains for him and he is one of those guys that will be missed a lot. I was watching TV when I heard about it and it was very sad to hear of the loss. We wouldn’t have been in three straight World Series if it wasn’t for him. We lost to Cincinnati in 76 and came back to win back-to-back championships in 77 and 78 because of his determination to be the best. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Steinbrenner family.”
