July 22, 1991

On May 21, an Up & Down With Baltimore column on this page quoted a story in the Wall Street Journal, stating that Eli Jacobs, the owner of the Baltimore Orioles, "sank very little of his own money into the $70 million purchase of the O's."

Since that time the Washington Post has reported that Jacobs in fact put $35 million of his own capital into the Orioles.

The Evening Sun is happy to make this clarification.
