Long time Yankees owner George Steinbrenner has suffered what is being called a massive heart attack  and is in critical condition according to WABC television. A Fox News report  says Steinbrenner was rushed to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Florida late Monday night.

His health has been failing over the last few years and it forced him to hand over the day-to-day operations of the New York Yankees to his sons since 2006.

The thoughts and prayers are definitely with him and his family and you have to believe that this has taken the Yankee family by surprise especially since a lot of their players are either in Anaheim, California for the All-Star game or on a mini-vacation during the all star break.

More news to come as it breaks.
