Happy 5th Anniversary to my Free The Birds friends who want change for Baltimore baseball

September 21, 2011 | Nestor Aparicio

I’ve been watching the Baltimore Orioles since 1973 and I’m not sure any of us could’ve predicted what this franchise was to become back in the late 1980’s when Camden Yards was built, our city was starved without football and the Colts had split town.

And conversely, what would we be – as a company or as a sports town – without [...]

Thirteen years ago this week, when I was still in my 20’s, I drove down Hart Road here in Towson for the first time with a cult following on a sports talk radio show from an AM big band radio station with a bunch of local listeners and a handful of small local business owners [...]

Baltimore loses its No. 1 fan with passing of William Donald Schaefer

Baltimore loses its No. 1 fan with passing of William Donald Schaefer

April 19, 2011 | Nestor Aparicio

There will be a lot written and said about the honorable William Donald Schaefer today in Baltimore and throughout the state of Maryland. I can honestly say that I knew the man a little and as a kid who grew up watching him shape the landscape of my beloved hometown and later knew him in [...]
