One of New York's most notorious sports figures wasn't an athlete but an owner, George Steinbrenner III, who micro-managed the Yankees to 11 American League pennants and seven World Series titles while hiring and firing management. During his 37 years as owner, "e;The Boss"e; became famous beyond the five boroughs for his stormy relationship with colorful managers (most notably Billy Martin), instating a military-style grooming code (no beards allowed), inspiring a "e;Seinfeld"e; character, driving up players' salaries to new heights, getting banned from baseball twice and building a new stadium for the Yankees. This e-single, comprised of articles curated from the New York Times archive, is a must-read for any Yankees fan or student of baseball.
