George Steinbrenner Was UM President Donna Shalala's Little League Coach
|A Little Shalala|
"I met George when I was nine years old on a baseball field in a Cleveland public park. I prefer to remember him as a young man who encouraged girls and boys to play sports with enthusiasm, skill and courage. He taught me to throw overhand and to slide. And over the years he was consistently kind to me whenever I ran into him -- for which I will always be grateful," said Shalala, the former secretary of Health and Human Services under Bill Clinton, in a statement released by the school.
