George Steinbrenner
July 04, 1930 George Michael Steinbrenner III Rocky River, Ohio, USABusiness

George Steinbrenner is an American billionaire businessman, and owner and the former principal executive of Major League Baseball's New York Yankees. His outspokenness and role in driving up player salaries have made him one of the sport's most controversial figures. His willingness to freely spend money in an effort to buy championships has allowed for the Yankees' erratic post-season success since 1976, yet has earned him begrudging respect from some baseball executives, while at the same time earning him contempt from some fans.

Steinbrenner is known as a hands-on executive, earning the nickname "The Boss". His tendency to meddle in daily on-field decisions, and to hire and fire (and occasionally re-hire) managers led then-Yankees skipper Dallas Green to give him the derisive nickname "Manager George".

During Steinbrenner's ownership, from 1973–2008, the longest in club history, the Yankees have earned 10 pennants and six World Series titles.

Born July 4, 1930, his primary personality traits are represented by the Chinese Zodiac elemental animal sign, the Metal Horse. The Metal Horse doesn't make the best camping buddy. He is relatively cold, self reliant nature, coupled with the Horse's love of freedom, make him a difficult Horse to get close to. He has strong determination and will go far as long as he can maintain focus. As human nature attracts us to that which we cannot have, it is not unlikely for him to be an object of his desire. He can be a dashing figure indeed.
