LOS ANGELES, July 17 (UPI) -- TBS says it will celebrate the life of George Steinbrenner by airing "Seinfeld" episodes featuring Larry David as the iconic New York Yankees owner.

Steinbrenner died Tuesday of a heart attack. He was 80.

The 10 episodes of "Seinfeld" featuring a fictionalized version of Steinbrenner are to air Monday through Friday next week.

"The week will kick off with 'The Opposite,' the fifth-season finale in which George Costanza (Jason Alexander) lands a job with the Yankees," TBS said in a news release Friday. "The tribute will close out with 'The Muffin Tops' episode, in which George loses his job when Steinbrenner trades him for new chicken concessions at Yankee Stadium."
