Yanks to honor Steinbrenner at tonight's game

Tonight?s Yankees game will be played after a tribute to team owner George Steinbrenner.

A video tribute to Steinbrenner, who died Tuesday, will be shown before the start of the game.

There will also be a moment of silence for Steinbrenner and announcer Bob Sheppard. The legendary announcer died last weekend at 99.

Tonight the Yankees also begin wearing patches for Steinbrenner and Sheppard on their jerseys. They will be worn for the rest of the season.

Steinbrenner?s funeral is tomorrow in Tampa.
