Statement from the New York Yankees

Re: passing of former Yankee Oscar Gamble

"It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of former Yankee Oscar Gamble. His prodigious power, unique style and joy in wearing pinstripes made him a favorite of fans and of the Steinbrenner family. In recent years, his appearances at Old-Timers' Day and work at our Fantasy Camp in Florida delighted those who got to reconnect with his personality and love of the game. Oscar was a treasured member of the Yankees family and will be deeply missed by our entire organization. We offer our deepest condolences to his family, friends and all who knew him."
