TAMPA, Fla. -- The Boss plans to be in New York for the All-Star game later this month.
Yankees owner George Steinbrenner said Thursday he will be in attendance for the July 15 game, which is one of the featured events during the final season at the current Yankee Stadium.
"I'm looking forward to it," Steinbrenner said at the Yankees' spring training complex.
Steinbrenner has kept a lower profile in recent years, and turned much of the Yankees' daily operation over to his sons, Hank and Hal Steinbrenner. But he still is involved with his team, normally working in his Tampa office four or five days a week.
Steinbrenner will celebrate his 78th birthday Friday with his family in Florida.
