Espn Films 30 for 30: The House of Steinbrenner
- Rated NR
- Genre: Sports
- Release Date: 3/13/2012
Love them or hate them, the Yankees remain the most successful team in American sports history. Behind George M. Steinbrenner, a man who with his passing in July 2010 proved to be as iconic to the team as it's pinstripes, the Yankees restored their storied sports stature with 7 World Championships. Through all the ups and downs of his reign, "The Boss" managed to link the legends and legacy of Yankees past to Yankees present. An essential part of that accomplishment included the demolition of the old Yankee Stadium to the construction of the new one, and the handover of ownership from George himself to his heirs, led by his youngest son, Hal. Two time Oscar winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple documents this historic moment of transition for the team, the family and it's fans - from the final day at the old Yankee Stadium, to the opening of the new Stadium, and from passage of the George Steinbrenner era to the Hal Steinbrenner era, all of which was magnificently capped off with the Yankees' 27th World Championship.
