Right Now in Baltimore

Right Now in Baltimore

Search no further for better words of wisdom for David Rubenstein and “Next Chapter” of Orioles baseball in Baltimore

If you want to know the real history of Baltimore baseball, you ask the folks who authored the story of Orioles Magic. Charles Steinberg comes back to Baltimore to hail Larry Lucchino and the real heroes of Camden Yards and saving the Orioles – and offers his best wisdom and native advice to new owner David Rubenstein from his Worcester Woo Sox seat at Polar Park.

How will the “next chapter” of Orioles ownership communicate with traumatized Baltimore fan base?

It's been 18 years since local communication and public relations guru Greg Abel created the "We're Not Gonna Take It" video after Nestor Aparicio led "Free The Birds" to communicate some uncomfortable truths to Peter Angelos. That was September 2006. Now, with David Rubenstein taking over the helm of the Orioles franchise, what do we expect to be better for the fans – other than everything?

The Peter Principles (Ch. 13): Mi$ter Angelo$ & $on$ Network change$ everything for two citie$

Peter G. Angelos threatens MLB and gets his every wish fulfilled in 2005 and the Orioles – and Washington baseball – would never be the same. The story about how MASN lined the family with cash for a generation of awful baseball and even worse television coverage of it.

25 WNST Stories of Glory

"...Time will not dim the glory of YOUR deeds"

WNST STORY OF GLORY No. 11: The legacy of “The Nasty Nice Guy Awards” two decades later

Back in 1996, Nestor was working with the Ed Block Courage Awards to raise money and awareness and dreamed up a Baltimore banquet that would bring together all of the local professional sports teams to honor the good people who play the games. The Nasty Nice Guy Awards hosted exclusively at Michael's Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie lasted eight years and raised over $150,000 for local charities. The late, great Bobby Nyk played the tunes and we partied for a purpose with a lot of very recognizable faces. Elrod Hendricks represented the Baltimore Orioles every year so you know it was the place to be! Ask anyone who attended these incredible nights about their pictures with Cal Ripken, Ray Lewis, Art Donovan, Mike Flanagan, Jon Ogden, Gov. William Donald Schaefer, Brian Billick, Fang Mitchell and so many others.
