The Baltimore Orioles have belonged to Peter Angelos and his family since he purchased the team back in 1993. But Angelos is 92 years old and eventually, someone else has to take over majority control of the O’s organization.
He does have two sons, Louis and John, but they appear to be at odds over the future of the franchise.
One brother sues another
According to Tim Prudente and Justin Fenton of The Baltimore Banner, Louis sued his brother John and his mother, claiming his father originally intended for both siblings to equally share the team. But according to Louis, John has taken over full control.
Louis still lives in Baltimore County, but interestingly, John does not — living in Nashville instead.
The lawsuit brings up several fascinating tidbits, but here’s the most noteworthy reveal.
For the lawsuit to include the part about Tennessee is interesting as he’s maintained in the past a strong desire to keep the Orioles in Baltimore, specifically stating so back in 2019.
Peter Angelos’ goal not quite accomplished
Peter Angelos established a trust in 2017 after collapsing due to an aortic valve failure, appointing his wife and two sons appointed as co-trustees, but apparently, things haven’t been so smooth since the arrangement.
Also within the lawsuit is a passage indicating Angelos’ wife Georgia would like to sell the team, even getting an advisor to attempt a sale in 2020, a deal Louis claims John squashed.
