Statement from Peter Angelos Regarding the Passing of Lee MacPhail


“Lee MacPhail’s impact on the game and the Orioles cannot be overstated. The MacPhail name is one of the most recognizable in Major League Baseball, and Lee continued his father Larry’s legacy over 45 years in the industry in his roles with the Orioles, Yankees and ultimately the Commissioner’s Office. His work as president and general manager of the Orioles, including the acquisition of future Hall of Fame outfielder Frank Robinson from the Cincinnati Reds, helped lay the groundwork for the club’s first World Series championship in 1966.  This legacy was extended by his son Andy, who oversaw the Orioles’ baseball operations for 4 ½ seasons and helped set the stage for the magical 2012 season.

On behalf of the Orioles organization, I extend my condolences to Andy and the MacPhail family.”
