It didn’t take long for the Yankees to try to shoot down today’s Daily News story that the Steinbrenners are thinking about selling the team.
Here’s the statement from Hal Steinbrenner:
“I just learned of the Daily News story. It is pure fiction. The Yankees are not for sale. I expect that the Yankees will be in my family for many years to come.”
And here’s a statement from MLB:
“Major League Baseball has received no indications from any representatives of the New York Yankees or anyone else that the Club is for sale.”
