    The mansion of the late New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and his wife, Joan Steinbrenner, is now in play. The gated estate in Tampa, FL, is available for $5.75 million.

    Known simply as “The Boss,” George died in 2010, and Joan in 2018. 

    Purchased in 2000 for $3.8 million, the place has been kept in “perfect condition,” according to the listing. 

    So how did one of the towering figures of late 20th-century baseball live? Let’s take a look around.

    At 13,480 square feet, the home built in 1958 is one of the largest on the Palma Ceia Golf Course. You enter through a graceful, two-story hall with black-and-white checkerboard tile. The entry is flanked by the formal living and dining rooms. These rooms flow into a spacious rec room and bar, family room, kitchen, library, and office.

    One entire side of the seven-bedroom home looks out to a garden with vine-covered arches and a pool.

    There’s a downstairs master suite and an upstairs suite. The latter comes with a kitchenette and two walk-in closets. Both bedroom suites have views of the pool and golf course. 

    In addition, there’s a media room, which leads to a one-bedroom apartment with a kitchen, living space, and dining room. The home also comes with an elevator.

    Steinbrenner, a shipping industry mogul, purchased the then-struggling Yankees franchise in 1973 for $8.7 million. Over his decades in control of the MLB’s marquee franchise, the team won seven World Series championships. As of this year, the Yankees are worth an estimated $4.2 billion and controlled by Steinbrenner’s two sons.

    Although Steinbrenner lived in Tampa full time, he became a New York cultural icon. His fame reached a pop culture apex when he became a character on the hit sitcom “Seinfeld,” with his permission. Portrayed by Lee Bear, his character was filmed only from the back, and the show’s co-creator Larry David provided the fast-talking voice of The Boss.

    Steinbrenner died at the age of 80.
