1993: 85-77, 3rd place
A group headed by Peter Angelos took ownership of the Orioles on Aug. 2, less than a month after Baltimore hosted the All-Star Game for the first time since 1958. The Orioles went 38-36 in the second half of the season and finished 10 games behind eventual World Series Champion Toronto in the American League East.

Regarding your article on Peter Angelos' legacy, some fans may mourn the departure of Davey Johnson, Pat Gillick and Jon Miller ("After 20 years owning Orioles, Peter Angelos' legacy still evolving," Aug. 1). Others also grieve over his purchase and then closure of Maison Marconi.
