Steinbrenner monument at Yankee Stadium set

NEW YORK (AP) - A monument to George Steinbrenner will be dedicated at Yankee Stadium next month.

The late New York Yankees owner will be remembered with the seventh memorial at the ballpark’s famed Monument Park. The tribute is set for Sept. 20 before the Yankees host the Tampa Bay Rays.

His family issued a statement Tuesday saying the monument will reflect Steinbrenner’s appreciation for all Yankees fans.

The six monuments now at Yankee Stadium honor Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Miller Huggins and the victims and heroes of Sept. 11.
