Yankees unveil Steinbrenner mural at Stadium

|
NEW YORK -- The Yankees unveiled an image mural in the right-field bleachers Thursday that pays tribute to George M. Steinbrenner, who passed away July 13 at the age of 80.

Measuring 40 feet wide and 13 and a half feet tall, the image features a photo of the late principal owner on a Yankees blue background with the trademark Yankee Stadium frieze across the top. The mural also bears Steinbrenner's name, the years '1930-2010,' and in large font, 'THE BOSS'.

The mural replaces a listing of the Yankees' 27 World Series championship years. The team said those would be relocated to the facing of the H&R Block Suite Level around the Stadium bowl, in view of the field, prior to the next homestand.
