Steinbrenner To Join Legends In Monument Park

The New York Yankees will dedicate a monument to late former owner George Steinbrenner on Sept. 20. The monument will join those already placed in Yankee Stadium’s Monument Park.

Here is part of a statement from the Steinbrenner family.

“We know we will always share George’s memory with Yankees fans everywhere, and a monument in his honor to be located in Monument Park will reflect the special connection, appreciation and responsibility that George felt for New York Yankees’ fans everywhere as they were always uppermost in his mind.”

Too bad the Yankees did not place Monument Park somewhere in the new stadium where people could actually see it. Depending on where you sit in the new house, you don’t even know the park exists.
