New York Yankees Mourn the Passing of
Henry G. "Hank" Steinbrenner
The New York Yankees mourn the passing of General Partner and Co-Chairperson Henry G. "Hank" Steinbrenner, who passed away earlier today at his home in Clearwater, Fla., from a longstanding health issue. Mr. Steinbrenner was 63.

"Hank was a genuine and gentle spirit who treasured the deep relationships he formed with those closest to him," said the Steinbrenner family. "He was introduced to the Yankees organization at a very young age, and his love for sports and competition continued to burn brightly throughout his life. Hank could be direct and outspoken, but in the very same conversation show great tenderness and light-heartedness. More than anything, he set an example for all of us in how comfortably he lived enjoying his personal passions and pursuits. We are profoundly saddened to have lost him and will carry his memory with us always."

Born April 2, 1957, and raised in his birthplace of Cleveland, Ohio, Mr. Steinbrenner was the eldest of four children by former Yankees Principal Owner George M. Steinbrenner III and his wife, Joan (pronounced Jo-Ann).

Mr. Steinbrenner was in his 13th season as a General Partner of the New York Yankees and his 11th season as Co-Chairperson of the club. Along with Managing General Partner / Co-Chairperson Hal Steinbrenner, Hank was responsible for overseeing all areas of the club's business and baseball operations, and was directly involved in player negotiations, long-term player recruitment goals and overall club strategy.

He spent many decades passionately involved in the breeding, raising and racing of horses, serving as a Vice President and Director of Bay Farms Corporation since 1985 and as a longtime member of the board of the Ocala Breeders Sales Company.

Mr. Steinbrenner attended Culver Military Academy and Central Methodist College in Missouri. Over the course of his career, he held additional roles as chairman of Minch Transit Company and vice president of Mid-Florida Hotels Corporation. In 2000, he coordinated a multi-year partnership with Gwynn Racing to field a Gwynn/Steinbrenner top fuel Yankees dragster on the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) Drag Racing Tour.

Joined by his son George Michael Steinbrenner IV, Mr. Steinbrenner reentered the world of competitive racing in 2016, contributing to the formation of Steinbrenner Racing. After participating two seasons in the Indy Lights developmental circuit in 2017 and 2018, the group announced a partnership with Harding Racing in September 2018. The new team began racing in 2019 as Harding Steinbrenner Racing, competing on the IndyCar circuit with George Michael as the youngest team owner in IndyCar history. Just two races into its first season in IndyCar, the team took the checkered flag on March 24, 2019, at the Circuit of Americas in Austin, Tex., as George Michael became the youngest owner to win a race in the history of the IndyCar Series. At the conclusion of the year, the team announced it was uniting with Andretti Autosport to race under the Andretti Harding Steinbrenner Autosport banner in 2020.

At the time of his passing, Mr. Steinbrenner served on the boards of the YES Network and Gold Shield Foundation and was involved in a number of not-for-profit causes and children's charities in New York and Tampa Bay, including The Joshua House, St. Joseph's Children's Hospital, Gigi's Playhouse Tampa, The Children's Dream Fund and the New York Yankees charitable foundations.

He is survived by four children, daughters Jacqueline and Julia, and sons George Michael IV and John, one granddaughter, Anabel, and his siblings, Jennifer, Jessica and Hal, and their families.

During this time of mourning, the family respectfully asks for the privacy needed to grieve this tremendous loss.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Friends of Joshua House Foundation (www.friendsofjoshuahouse.org; P.O. Box 26333, Tampa, FL 33623, 813-263-3469) or to a charity of one's choosing.

Tips, odds and predictions for this year’s World Series

With 162 games to play and the season barely a month old, it is tough to predict who might win the World Series but the divisions are already taking shape.   The Chicago Cubs were many pundits’ pick to make it back-to-back championships after they took care of the Cleveland Indians last year but have yet to make a real mark on the National League Central.  With a winning percentage just above the .500 mark, they sit third in the standings behind Cincinnati and St Louis while Milwaukee are also right there and even fifth-placed Pittsburgh are by no means adrift.  However, they appear to be the most complete team in baseball at the moment with a rotation that includes Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta and Kyle Hendricks. However, if you fancy taking a punt on the Cubs, these baseball betting tips may be worth viewing before placing a wager.  Third baseman Kris Bryant leads the team with six home runs and 16 RBI and has already drawn 22 walks this term, while Anthony Rizzo, Kyle Schwarber and Jason Heyward have all been productive.

The main pitching staff all had miserly ERAs last season but Hendriks is up at 3.51 while Arrieta needs to lower his from 4.63 if they are to justify odds of 4/1.  The Indians (7/1) are once again thought of as World Series material and have established a slight lead at the top of the American League Central.  The addition of Edwin Encarnacion could be the final piece of the puzzle to take the 2016 runners-up all the way this year.  Coming off a 42 home run, 127 RBI campaign, the 34-year-old has hit five out of the park so far but has yet to really get hot.

Third baseman Jose Ramirez has picked up the slack, with 23 RBIs and 15 runs scored while Francisco Lindor leads the team in runs scored and is on track to beat his season record for homers.  While the Cubs and Indians have garnered many column inches in the build up to the season, it is by no means two-horse race, with the New York Yankees (14/1) and Baltimore Oriels (20/1) making a sensational start in the AL East.  For the Yankees, second-year right fielder Aaron Judge leads the team with 13 homers are 28 RBIs, while Starlin Castro is batting at above .350 with 21 runs scored, and the pair will be crucial to the Big Apple outfit’s chances of going all the way.  The Boston Red Sox, currently priced at around 6/1 to win the World Series, are four games back and are indebted to lefty Chris Sale, who has won three games riding a 1.92 ERA.

Conversely, Steven Wright has given up 22 earned runs in five outings at an ERA of 8.25 and will need to step up to give his side the consistency they need to close the gap on the leading duo.  The Washington Nationals (8/1) are already streets ahead in the NL East and will surely romp to the play-offs while the Colorado Rockies are clear of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the West.  That is a battle that could go all the way, while Arizona are not too far behind and could have a say in proceedings.  Houston Astros have never won a World Series and will probably come up short once again in 2017 but they have made an excellent start in the AL West thanks to the pitching of Dallas Keuchel.  The 29-year-old has a 5-0 record with an ERA of just 1.88 and is carrying the team at the moment.  The problem is he can only pitch every five days and the other starters need to up their game.

The marathon MLB season still has many months to run and injuries and dips in form will come in to play but, even at the early stage, it is going to take a special side to chop down the Indians.
