Hank Steinbrenner retires from magazine columnist career
What ever happened to Hank Steinbrenner's much ballyhooed column in The Sporting News?
Short answer: Hal took over the Yankees, and Hank was gone without a trace. No more column, no returned phone calls, no nuthin'.
The editor said there was no formal contract and there are no hard feelings whatsoever, but he did note that George Steinbrenner has written as many columns for the magazine - appreciations of Bobby Murcer and Thurman Munson - as Hank ever did.
