Received this press release from the Yankees:

Today the New York Yankees announced new titles for members of the Steinbrenner family.

George M. Steinbrenner III, Chairperson. Hal and Hank Steinbrenner, Co-Chairpersons. Jennifer Steinbrenner Swindal, Jessica Steinbrenner and Joan Steinbrenner, Vice Chairpersons.

George M. Steinbrenner stated, “I am excited to announce these titles. I am pleased to work with my two sons, Hal and Hank. With me, they will jointly oversee the club on a day to day basis. I am also gratified to recognize the leadership of my daughter Jenny in the club’s charitable endeavors and her involvement with new stadium matters; as well as the contributions of my wife Joan and daughter Jessica in assisting me.

“Together with my executive team, the New York Yankees are prepared for the future and the exciting challenges the next several years will bring.”


I’m not sure what this means, estate planning perhaps. If nothing else, it shows that Hank and Hal are indeed on equal footing.
