"George Steinbrenner is well and raising hell today (Tuesday, Oct, 31).

"He attended a performance of Cabaret in which his granddaughter, Haley Swindal, was a cast member, on Sunday afternoon at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she is a Junior.

"George felt ill during the performance, which was held in a Revolutionary War auditorium with no air conditioning and the windows closed tight - it was very hot.

"An ambulance was called and it took George to the hospital where he was examined head to toe. George stayed overnight in the hospital and was released on Monday morning at which time he flew home and was back working in Tampa Monday afternoon.

"I've spoken to George several times on Monday and today, and he is ok. He's dived back into planning next season and is quite feisty. He's spoken several times to his staff, including Randy Levine and Lonn Trost.

"Steinbrenner said, 'I was disappointed that I couldn't watch Haley's full performance on Sunday.' The performance was cancelled at the intermission.

"George is just fine."
