That’s Mr. (Ruben)Splash, To You

At this very moment, David Rubenstein is the perfect owner of the Baltimore Orioles. He’s a fan, at heart. He was born and raised here, in Pikesville, where he jokes he played a mean shortstop in a Jewish Little League. And, today, decades later, he’s a content, 74-year-old billionaire who keeps hitting all the right notes two months into taking over control of the beloved hometown professional baseball team in a $1.7 billion deal.

It “felt like a razor” hit his face, he said, as he hit the ground and his helmet went flying. And that was when things were going well.

He is ranked 10th in the world and is the United States’ top men’s tennis star.
