He told The Associated Press last week that he was "feeling good" after spending a couple hours in his office at the Yankees' spring training complex.

Under his ownership, the Yankees have won 11 AL pennants and seven World Series titles.

Dude definitely wanted to win, he even took a chance on George Costanza. After George had that incident with the cleaning lady at an earlier place of employment, than his short lived stint with Vandelay industries - it was a tough call. But it did work out, Costanza was even able to get the team to eat candy with a knife and fork.

Well played Mr Steinbrenner, well played.
