MLB.com’s Barry Bloom spoke to Yankees co-chairman Hal Steinbrenner at the owner’s meetings today in Minneapolis, and Steinbrenner said that a memorial is planned for his late father, George, during the Sept. 20-23 four-game series against the Rays at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees already honored Steinbrenner – who passed away July 13 – and public address announcer Bob Sheppard at Yankee Stadium before a game against the Rays on July 16.
The family was not in attendance that day because Steinbrenner’s funeral was in Tampa on July 17. Commissioner Bud Selig said he is planning on attending the September memorial.
“We’re still trying to pin it down, but I think it’s going to be before the game on Sept. 20,” Hal Steinbrenner said.
