Statement From Bobby Cox On The Passing Of George Steinbrenner

From Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox (via the Braves media relations folks):

"This is a huge loss for baseball. George was a true winner. I worked for him for 10 years and we got along great. He was tough guy, but he was also very nice and he had a big heart.

I remember when the annual Winter Meetings were really exciting, guys like George Steinbrenner, Ted Turner (Atlanta Braves) and Brad Corbett (Texas Rangers) really made them something to look forward to - they were always the life of the meetings.

George will be greatly missed and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and to the Yankees."

Nice words from our skipper about the Boss. He was a unique figure in the game of baseball.
