Default Welcome to Steinbrenner Field

The New York Yankees will rename their spring training home Steinbrenner Field in honor of the man who has owned the team since 1973. The ballpark has been called Legends Field since it opened in 1996.

"I am humbled and flattered," Steinbrenner said in a statement Tuesday.

Guess your feelings on this depend on how ya view the man.

I don't mind it (shrugs shoulders).

I think the guy is a tool... but this was a nice way for the Yanks to honor him and everything he's done. I'm cool with it.
