Watch video: Fans in Tampa react to George Steinbrenner's death



New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, 80, died Tuesday morning after suffering a severe heart attack at his Tampa home Monday night.

Everyone knew George Steinbrenner III as the Boss, the bullying and bombastic owner of the New York Yankees, famous for firings and feuds, with a temper so legendary that it was parodied on TV's Seinfeld. But many in his adopted hometown of Tampa saw his other side — the compulsively generous, big-hearted billionaire who leaves a legacy of quiet philanthropy to children.
