Orioles Owner Angelos OK With Nats Promos In Baltimore
Published May 16, 2008
Orioles Owner Peter Angelos said that he "had no problem with" the Nationals sending team officials to Baltimore's Inner Harbor to distribute team coolers and pocket schedules to fans, according to Jeff Barker of the Baltimore SUN. Angelos said, "It doesn't strike me in any particular way. They're welcome to do that. It's a free country." Angelos added Baltimore and DC are "one huge megalopolis, you know? It's about time we realize it." Barker reports the lunch-time event was jointly organized by the Nationals and Virginia-based Brotman-Winter-Fried Communications, and organizers "hoped to promote the Nationals and their series with Baltimore this weekend and in Washington on June 27-29." The Nationals' mascot Screech and the four Racing Presidents were among the team personnel involved with the promo (Baltimore SUN, 5/16).
