New York Yankee players reacted with sadness to the news of George Steinbrenner’s passing.
“I miss him being around, motivating us, patting us on the back, knowing how badly he wants to win,” [Andy] Pettitte said. "He has obviously done so much for the city of New York and has meant as much to baseball as anybody, I believe.
“He has not only pushed our organization, he has pushed other organizations to be greater, so he’s raised the bar. He was a pioneer for baseball.”
