It is with deep sadness that I learned of the death of my friend Mike Flanagan earlier this evening. In over a quarter century with the organization, Flanny became an integral part of the Orioles family, for his accomplishments both on and off the field. His loss will be felt deeply and profoundly by all of us with the ballclub and by Orioles fans everywhere who admired him. On behalf of the club I extend my condolences to his wife, Alex; and daughters Kerry, Kathryn and Kendall.
I met Mike Flanagan a couple times as part of my duties here with Camden Depot this past season. In those brief interactions I came to think of him as a smart, insightful, and interesting person. It saddens me to learn of his passing and my thoughts go out to his family and friends.
