Orioles owner Peter Angelos has passed away at age 94

It’s the end of an era of the Orioles. The team announced on Saturday afternoon that owner Peter G. Angelos, who made a fortune in asbestos-related lawsuits that allowed him to buy the team over 30 years ago, has passed away. He was 94 years old.

Though he’s technically been the owner the whole time, the Peter Angelos tenure as the person controlling the franchise came to an end several years ago, as it was sons John and Louis who were the public face as the team transitioned from the Dan Duquette/Buck Showalter era into the Mike Elias era.
