In an article in The New York Times, reporter Charlie Savage details attempted deals with Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Lithuania and Albania, among other countries.

George Steinbrenner reigned as the owner of the New York Yankees for 38 years. In that time his team won seven World Series Championships, 11 American League pennants, 16 AL-East titles. But Steinbrenner was also suspended from baseball twice, one time for life. In 1990, "The Boss" was banned for life for paying a small-time gambler who was paid $40,000 to dig up some dirt on hall-of-famer, Dave Winfield. Steinbrenner was reinstated in 1993, and went to win five more championships.
