O’s broadcaster says relationship with club has been ‘mischaracterized’

O's broadcaster says relationship with club has been 'mischaracterized'

Baltimore Orioles television play-by-play voice Kevin Brown is returning to the team’s broadcast booth Friday after being pulled with no explanation following a game against the Tampa Bay Rays on July 23.

It was reported Monday that Brown was serving a suspension handed down by Orioles ownership for mentioning the club’s woeful record at Tropicana Field during a broadcast earlier in the series.

However, Brown suggested otherwise Friday with his first public statement since the incident.

“Unfortunately, recent media reports have mischaracterized my relationship with my adopted hometown Orioles,” Brown posted on the X platform, formerly known as Twitter. “The fact is that I have a wonderful relationship with the organization, and our ownership and front office has fully supported me since 2019 when I first came aboard.”

The 33-year-old added: “I ask that everyone disregard the distracting noise of the past few days. I have worked closely with O’s senior vice president Greg Bader for the past four years, and (chief executive officer) John Angelos and I have a solid dialogue based on mutual respect. We are all good here in Birdland.”

Brown has been the club’s primary television voice for the last two seasons after joining the radio broadcast crew in 2019.

Baltimore is on pace to make the playoffs this season for the first time since 2016 after a prolonged rebuild that resulted in three 100-plus-loss campaigns between 2018-2021.
