George Steinbrenner, the Music Lover

George Steinbrenner with Beverly Sills and Robert Merrill
George Steinbrenner with Beverly Sills and Robert Merrill

He didn't just do baseball. George Steinbrenner loved opera and played the piano. Opera Chic, my favorite music blog, shows a photo of George Steinbrenner with two of his friends from opera, soprano Beverly Sills and Robert Merrill. Baritone Robert Merrill was known to sing the National Anthem at the Yankees' Opening Day.
The photos are from Bill Madden's book, "Steinbrenner: the last lion of baseball".
Click here to see the photo plus another of Steinbrenner leading the New York Pops.
Thanks to Opera Chic!
