In its October issue, Washingtonian magazine puts me on its “Super Power” list — the 150 most influential people in Washington.
Here’s what they say:
“Fred Malek. He lost his bid to own DC’s baseball team, but the GOP insider and corporate-buyout artist doesn’t lose often.”
I appreciate the praise. But as far as DC’s baseball team in concerned, here’s what the Washingtonian magazine said about me last year:
“Fred Malek: … we wouldn’t have baseball without him.”
It was a pleasure to work with a visionary leader like Mayor Tony Williams and all the members of my Washington-based ball group team. I am deeply gratified to have played a role in bringing baseball to our city. We are also pleased that it is in the hands of strong local owners, with a solid team president like Stan Kasten.
