Peter Angelos, longtime owner of the Baltimore Orioles, has died at the age of 94.

The Major League Baseball team announced the news on Saturday, saying that Angelos had been ill for several years.

A statement said: ‘Today, Peter G. Angelos passed away quietly at the age of 94.

‘Mr. Angelos had been ill for several years and the family thanks the doctors, nurses and caregivers who brought comfort to him in his final years.

‘It was Mr Angelos’ wish to have a private burial and the family asks for understanding as they honor that request. Donations may be sent to charity in lieu of flowers.’

Angelos bought the team with a consortium back in 1993 from New York venture capitalist Eli Jacobs at a price of $173m. Forbes has recently valued the team at $1.713b, the 18th highest for a baseball team.

His son, John, has been the chair and managing partner of the team since 2020 – taking over for his father as his health deteriorated.

The Orioles had been subject to relocation rumors for years, but in October of 2019, John stated that he and his father did not have plans to move the team.
