Report: Steinbrenner in Tampa hospital (with UPDATES)

There are two reports out there about George Steinbrenner being taken to a Tampa-area hospital. Here is one and here is the other. Information is very murky at this time so I’ll keep updating this post with news as it comes out.

UPDATE, 9:25 a.m.: I just spoke to Howard Rubenstein, who is Steinbrenner’s long-time PR man, and he cut off the conversation after only a few seconds. He said a “we will have a statement shortly” on the situation and that he could not confirm anything “at this moment.” It sounds as though Steinbrenner was reportedly hospitalized Monday night with a heart attack. Keep it here for updates.

UPDATE, 9:48 a.m.: Chad here. The Associated Press is reporting that Steinbrenner has died. They are citing “a person close to George Steinbrenner” saying he passed away this morning.
