UNC makes pitch to Steinbrenner

Monday, March 27, 2006

Athletics boosters at the UNC are hitting up likely donors - including New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner - to raise as much as $13 million to build grandstand facilities at the school's baseball field. UNC officials met with Steinbrenner this month at the Yankees' spring training camp in Tampa, Fla., to make their pitch. Both Steinbrenner's daughter and son-in-law are UNC grads, and his granddaughter is currently a junior at the university. (MSNBC)
