“The passing of George Steinbrenner marks the end of an era in New York City baseball history. George was a larger than life figure and a force in the industry. The rise and success of his teams on the field and in the business marketplace under his leadership are a testament to his skill, drive, and determination. “All of us at the Mets send our deepest condolences to his wife Joan, his sons Hank and Hal, daughters Jennifer and Jessica, his grandchildren, and everyone at the Yankees organization.”

    Whatever faults the Wilpons have, they have done their share of classy things as well, including community work.

    Perhap’s the biggest challenge the Wilpons have faced is being in the same city with one of the World’s most lucrative sports franchises,in the Steinbrenner yanks. They could have ignored the news altogether and taken a low road, but they showed class and grace with this note of condolence
