Rest in peace, Tim Russert

Just got to Minute Maid Park and heard the news that NBC’s Tim Russert has died.

Russert was a tremendous baseball fan who was at RFK Stadium to see the Yankees when they played there a few years ago. What a shame.

UPDATE, 4:56 p.m.: Here’s a statement from George Steinbrenner:

“I join millions of others in mourning Tim’s passing. He loved the game of baseball and was a true friend of the Yankees and mine. Tim always batted in the cleanup spot for the media and always hit for the fences. May God bless him and his family.”
