Orioles set to introduce Dan Duquette
Baltimore, MD – After nearly a decade away from pro baseball, Dan Duquette will be introduced Tuesday morning as president of baseball operations for the Baltimore Orioles.
Duquette was hired to replace Andy MacPhail, who decided last month not to return after four-plus years in the position.
It will be Duquette's first job in Major League Baseball since 2002, when he was fired as general manager of the Boston Red Sox soon after new ownership took over.
Duquette, who had been running a sports academy in Massachusetts, is the cousin of former Orioles vice president of baseball operations Jim Duquette, who resigned in 2007 after two years with the team.
The Orioles have suffered through 14 losing season in a row.
