Harding Steinbrenner Racing Team Principal George Steinbrenner IV has released the following statement after the death of his father Henry George ‘Hank’ Steinbrenner II:

“It’s with great sadness I share the news of the passing of my father, Henry George “Hank” Steinbrenner II. Ever since I can remember, my dad has always been my biggest supporter. He taught me determination, confidence and the desire to win above all else. Being a massive racing fan himself, when I sought to start a racing team, he stood in my corner the whole way. I will forever be grateful for all the lessons he taught me. I look forward to the day we are able to return to the track and race to win in his honor. Until then, my heart is with my family, our race team and the entire Yankees organization. Thank you to all for your kind words and support in this time.”

Hank Steinbrenner was co owner of the New York Yankees Major League Baseball team. The team released a statement:

Hank was a genuine and gentle spirit who treasured the deep relationships he formed with those closest to him. “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.”
