George SteinbrennerContrary to some reports, George Steinbrenner is in good health, and he's willing to have anyone that doesn't believe it come and conduct a workout with him.

Steinbrenner in a rare interview with the AP said, "No, I did not have a stroke. I am not ill. I work out daily." He the goes on to say, "I'd like to see people who are saying that to come down here and do the workout that I do," he said.

On control of the club: "I have relinquished pretty much all control of the Yankees. I had to make room for the young people. You can't hold them back."

On the Yankees place in sports history: "We are the first billion-dollar baseball team," he says. "I never dreamt the team would ever be worth that much when we bought it for $8.8 million ... I'd say that was a pretty good investment."

On the Yankee's fans: [A]s "loyal and knowledgeable like no others in the world." 

"They are involved," he said. "They're the best."
