New York Yankees Presidents
From BR Bullpen
During the years prior to George Steinbrenner's purchase of the New York Yankees, the title of President of the New York Yankees actually meant something. At times, the President was also the majority owner or was the representative of the team as the owners were not always available to run the team, such as when William S. Paley of CBS owned the team. Following the departure of Gabe Paul in 1977, the title of team president meant very little in the Yankees organization as principal owner Steinbrenner was running the team. A good example of this was when Steinbrenner named his former Northwestern football coach, Lou Saban, as team president. By 1986, the title was non-existent. Today, the position is held by Randy Levine.
