BACK TO SCHOOL: MOLLOY TAKES SABBATICAL FROM YANKS TO TEACH
Published September 17, 1997
Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner has confirmed that Joe Molloy, his son-in-law and the team's General Partner, "has given up his day-to-day responsibilities -- a move several Yankees insiders anticipate will become a permanent withdrawal," according to Dan Wasserman of the Newark STAR- LEDGER. After nine years with the Yankees, Molloy has taken a "sabbatical" to return to teaching at a Tampa high school. Wasserman wrote that observers "agree that Molloy's days [as] a full-time force in the front office are history, especially as long as Steinbrenner is around." On Monday, Steinbrenner "admitted that the latest defection makes his youngest son, Hal, a clear-cut heir apparent" as Managing General Partner when he retires (Newark STAR-LEDGER, 9/16).
