COWBOYS, YANKEES FORM HOSPITALITY COMPANY

BUSINESS

The Cowboys and Yankees are forming a company together. Legends Hospitality Management will handle concession and merchandise sales at the clubs' stadiums that open next year, with a goal of doing the same for other pro and college teams.

Yankees co-chairman Hal Steinbrenner said his father, George, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones have long had mutual respect for each, "so it made perfect sense for us."

Former Pizza Hut president Mike Rawlings, who will serve as CEO, said the goal wasn't to raise prices, which have yet to be set, but rather to shorten lines and offer fresher food and more variety.

At a news conference, a video was shown of George Steinbrenner and Jones meeting Oct. 13 in Tampa and professing their admiration for each other.
