>It’s bad enough that George Steinbrenner was about as subtle as a herd of elephants when it came to his involvement with the Yankees while he was still alive, but now his larger than life legacy is going to be permanently enshrined with the Yankee greats in Monument Park inside Yankee Stadium.  Check it out:

There’s a great article on Big League Stew by Dan Brown that points out how Steinbrenner’s monument is actually 2.5 times larger than the other monuments that you see pictured to the left.  You know, because Steinbrenner was more important to the Yankees than, say, Mickey Mantle, whose monument you see dwarfed right next to Steinbrenner.  Or, Dimaggio… or Ruth.  None of them can hold a candle to the importance of Steinbrenner.
