John Orlos, CEO of The Orioles, is adamant that he will not leave the Baltimore franchise

The Orioles’ CEO, John Angelos, stated on Monday that the franchise will remain in Baltimore, and that he and his parents have never considered moving the organisation elsewhere. Angelos’ remarks, which were made public by the team, came only days after his brother Lou Angelos sued him. In a lawsuit filed last week, Lou alleged that John had taken control of the Orioles at his expense and against their father Peter’s desires.

The suit did not elaborate on how likely it was that the team might actually move, and John Angelos sought to reassure fans in his statement Monday. As I have said before, as long as Fort McHenry is standing watch over the Inner Harbor, the Orioles will remain in Baltimore,” he said. “My mother was born and raised in northeast Baltimore, attended city public schools at Eastern High School and has worked with my father their entire lives to help the city, including by restoring the club to local ownership and preventing its relocation. For them, as for me, the Orioles will forever play at Oriole Park, and at no time ever have we contemplated anything different.”Peter Angelos became the Orioles’ owner in 1993, but his public role has diminished in recent years and he turns 93 next month.

“John plans to preserve ultimate control over the Orioles — to manage, sell, or, if he chooses, to move to Tennessee (where he owns a home and where his wife’s career is based) — without having to answer to anyone,” according to the lawsuit.
