ANGELOS PROFILED: ORIOLES OWNER A "SHREWD NEGOTIATOR"

          Orioles Owner Peter Angelos is profiled by Peter
     Schmuck of the Baltimore SUN in the first of a three-part
     series on the team's front office.  Angelos "is a shrewd
     negotiator with a knack for getting what he wants and a
     stubborn streak when it comes to doing what he thinks is
     best for business."  He has "steered" the Orioles "into
     regular contention and -- it appears -- into a new era of
     stability and tranquility."  Angelos, on the team's payroll:
     "We might end up with the highest payroll in baseball, but
     it won't be comprised of players who make $10-$12M per year.
     ... Baseball cannot support $10 million players unless
     baseball reaches the average ticket level of basketball,
     football and hockey, which is two to three times the average
     ticket price of baseball" (Baltimore SUN, 2/24).
