I just found out about his death.

George Steinbrenner was always a rich man.
His estimated net worth was $1.15 billion dolars in the year of 2009 according to the Forbes 400 List issued in September 2009.

Steinbrenner debuted on the list of the richest Americans in 2007, tying for last place at #380 with 20 others with a net worth of $1.3 billion, the entry level that pre-recession year. His net worth dipped to $1.15 billion last fall, though a faltering economy meant he actually rose up the ranks of the Forbes 400 to #341. The bulk of Steinbrenner's wealth came from his YES Network, a regional cable outfit broadcasting the Bronx Bombers all over the northeast.
