From Longman Dictionary of Contemporary EnglishSteinbrenner, GeorgeGeorge SteinbrennerStein‧bren‧ner, George /ˈstaɪnbrenə $ -nər/  (1930–2010) a US businessman who became the owner of the New York Yankees baseball team in 1973. He was known for saying exactly what he thought, paying a lot of money for baseball players, and for changing the manager of the team a lot. He was suspended from baseball for two years in the 1970s after he admitted illegally giving money to Richard Nixon's campaign for president. In 1990 he was banned (ban) from baseball after paying someone to get information on a player during an argument over that player's contract, but he was allowed to return in 1993.
