Baltimore Orioles20 years ago, the Orioles opened a merchandising store in the heart of Washington, DC. Now, that 20-year run will come to an end when the lease expires at the end of December.

The Orioles' Farragut Square store will shut down, and in some senses, provide a victory for fans of the return of MLB to Washington, DC. It was well documented that Orioles owner Peter Angelos was very much against relocation of the Montreal Expos to DC, and at one point said, "There are no real baseball fans in DC."

"For Washington fans, the Orioles store on Farragut Square is a symbol, an emblem of all the years that we had no team and the Orioles did all they could to keep it that way," Colin Mills, president of the Nats Fan Club, said in an e-mail reply to a Sun query. "It's as if the British, after losing the revolution, had kept a royal office open in downtown Boston." (The Baltimore Sun)
