Steinbrenner Family Plans Private Funeral, Held In Tampa

Following Tuesday's passing of legendary owner George Steinbrenner, his family has planned a private funeral in Tampa, likely to be held on Saturday, and open only for the immediate family, this according to "people close" to The Boss, reports Jon Heyman.

There will be memorials held at George M. Steinbrenner Field -- the Yankees' spring training home in Tampa -- and later in New York -- probably at Yankee Stadium -- where dignitaries will honor the man who bought the Yankees in January 1973 and became sports' most iconic owner.
