New York, NY--July 21, 2010 New Yorkers may love or hate the New York Yankees, but one thing they can all agree on is that George Steinbrenner built the team into a world champion dynasty. WPIX and THIS TV will honor "The Boss" of baseball, the late George Steinbrenner, with a special programming lineup on Saturday, July 24. Airing exclusively in New York on WPIX's digital channel 11.3, the tribute kicks off at 7:00 pm ET with "The Pride of the Yankees," the classic baseball film starring Gary Cooper followed by four back-to-back episodes of the 1960 television series "Home Run Derby," with Yankees legend Mickey Mantle. An encore presentation of the tribute will air Sunday July, 25 at 11:00 pm ET.
