The Baltimore Orioles are a professional baseball team in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. The Baltimore Orioles play in the American League East division of Major League Baseball.
There has been some form of controversial dispute as far as getting the Announcer for the team is concerned. Former announcer Gary Thorne expressed some amount of disappointment regarding contract initiations.
The Orioles notified Thorne’s agent that his contract would not be renewed in January, according to Thorne. Thorne expressed his dissatisfaction with the team’s decision not to re-sign him. A contract issue in the aftermath of the pandemic prevented him from appearing on a MASN program in 2020. Thorne stated in January, “It’s a horrible situation.”
