HOUSTON, TX - The following is a statement from Astros Chairman and CEO Drayton McLane on today's passing of longtime Yankees owner George Steinbrenner:

"I have known George Steinbrenner since we purchased the Astros in 1993. He was one of the few owners still involved today. He welcomed me as an owner and said that they were looking for new ideas, marketing, and leadership in Major League Baseball. Each time he was at an Owner's meeting, he went out of his way to extend his friendship, and he certainly made me feel at home."

"He built the Yankees into the preeminent team in MLB. Over the years, they have been consistently competitive and often World Champions. The new Yankee Stadium he built is one of the finest sports facilities in the world. He was truly a leader to be admired."

"We regret very much his passing, and our heartfelt condolences go out to his family and the New York Yankees. He will be missed."
