Reports are now surfacing after early morning accounts that New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner has died at the age of 80 years old.

According to reports, Steinbrenner was rushed to a Tampa hospital after emergency personnel had responded to a call at his home on Monday night.

Steinbrenner told the Associated Press in an interview last week that he was feeling fine even after just celebrating his eightieth birthday on July 4th.

Under his ownership of the Bronx Bombers, the Yankees and Steinbrenner have won seven American League pennants and seven World Series titles.

Steinbrenner had given his sons, Hal and Hank, day-to-day control of the Yankees in the later part of 2007.

No more reports are available at this time on the passing of New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner.
