Tommy D'Alesandro Jr.

The long-time mayor of Baltimore (from 1947-59) and Little Italy mainstay helped bring the major-league Orioles home (in 1954, when the hapless St. Louis Browns relocated here) and was the sire of a political legacy that included a future mayor (Thomas D'Alesandro III) and Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives (Nancy Pelosi).
